Jacques Cartier, voyager of St. Malo, coasted along the north of Newfoundland in 1534 and passed through the Straits of Belle Ilse into the water now known as St. Lawrence Gulf, and into the mouth of the St. Lawrence River. Erecting a cross, he took possession of the shores in the name of the king of France.
