The Fur Trade.
Unfortunately, there were some negative attributions from the contact. The First Nations were introduced to new diseases such as Smallpox, measles, and typhus. The First Nations were not used to them and didn't have the right medicine to prevent them. In result, many died. As well there were other problems. The Europeans kidnapped them and took their land.
For the Europeans they also had problems. Exploration was dangerous, there were shipwrecks, starvation, battle and the cold Canadian weatherbrought many new problems, to the Europeans. THis new land killed many.
