Did You Know? Quebec - Did you know? Between 1714 and 1754, approximately 4,500 immigrants settled in New France. They included indentured workers and soldiers stationed in the colony, but most of them, it appears, were unsavory characters, including hundreds of salt smugglers who sold salt illegally in France. France wanted to get rid of these smugglers, and the colony accepted them without complaint because once they were in New France, most of them mended their ways and were on their best behavior.
