Although Canada and India are worlds apart, these countries do share some similarities. Both Canada and India have been British colonies; indeed, these countries have been colonized by England for economic purpose, meaning that British first came as traders. English settlers took control of the fur trade in Canada and the cotton trade in India. In other words, both countries supplied goods to the benefit of British. In both cases, British bought goods from natives for cheaper prices and sold them at higher prices, which contributed to British’s economy.
