Approximate migration routes throughout North America

The first human populations to inhabit North America came from eastern Asia about 20 000 years ago. After many thousand years of slow migration across the continent, human populations arrived in what is today Quebec, leaving scattered evidence of their existence as they went. The earliest signs of human presence in Quebec date to the Early Palaeoindian period (12 000 – 10 000 years B.P.).
