"Canada" is most likely derived from the Huron-Iroquois word "kanata," meaning "village" or "settlement." In 1535, two Aboriginal youths spoke to French explorer Jacques Cartier about the route to kanata; they were actually referring to the village of Stadacona, the site of the present-day City of Québec.Having no other name, Cartier called the village "Canada," as well as the whole area controlled by its chief, Donnacona.For more information, see http://nrcan.gc.ca.
