The islands are situated in the Gulf of St. Lawrence near the entrance of Fortune Bay , which extends into the southwestern coast of Newfoundland , near the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. Saint-Pierre is French for Saint Peter , the patron saint of fishermen. Therefore, from Mikelon it may have been written in the French way with a q instead of a k. Archaeological evidence indicates that native peoples such as the Beothuk visited St Pierre and Miquelon, however it is not thought that they settled on the islands permanently.
St Pierre and Miquelon is what the French call a collectivity. Its 6, inhabitants are French citizens, use the euro as currency and by all accounts bake a mean baguette. But their closest connections are with the island of Newfoundland, 25km To fly from St Pierre, the largest community, to Paris, you must go through Canada. Why are these islands part of France? It started with Catholicism and cod. France was a Catholic nation when European explorers first learned of the rich cod stocks around Newfoundland at the end of the 15th century.
Nope, they already receive BILLIONS of euros in support from the French govenment every year. Canada could, and would, NEVER match that.

Just off the coast of Newfoundland is a collection of islands that are not part of the province. Indeed, they are not even Canada! They are quite distinct from Newfoundland and Labrador, making them a must visit. If anything, the history of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon has been tumultuous. They have long been a territory that has been exchanged, sometimes violently so, between the French and the English as they waged conflicts in the larger world.
