New France (French: Nouvelle-France) is the area colonized by Kingdom of France in North America during a period beginning with the exploration of the Saint Lawrence River by Jacques Cartier in 1534. At its peak New France extended from Newfoundland to the Rocky Mountains and from Hudson Bay to the Gulf of Mexico, including all the Great Lakes of North America.

The territory of New France is divided into colonies, each with its own administration. These are Canada, Louisiana, Acadia and Newfoundland (Plaisance). The last two claimed and in dispute with the Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland.
