Saint Pierre and Miquelon

Saint Pierre and Miquelon (French "Saint-Pierre et Miquelon") is a French overseas collectivity consisting of several small islands off the eastern coast of Canada near Newfoundland.

First settled by the French in the early 17th century, the islands represent the sole remaining vestige of France's once vast North American possessions.
