Saint Pierre and Miquelon


Français Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon - Collectivité d'outre mer de Saint-Pierre et Miquelon

Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon est depuis 1985, une collectivité territoriale à statut particulier, au sein de la République française et de l'Union européenne. Ce minuscule archipel est situé à l’est du Canada, à 25 km au sud de l’île et de la province de Terre-Neuve.

English Saint Pierre and Miquelon - Overseas Collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon

Saint Pierre and Miquelon is an overseas collectivity and a constituent part of the French Republic, consisting of several small islands off the eastern coast of ► Canada near Newfoundland. It is the only remnant of the former colonial territory of New France. The island of Saint-Pierre is surrounded by smaller dependencies which include the island of Grand Colombier, Petit Colombier, Île aux Marins (formally known as Île aux Chiens), Île aux Pigeons and Île aux Vainqueurs. The total area of the islands is 93.4 square miles (242 km²). They have a coastline which is 74.5 miles (120 km) long. The island of Miquelon is roughly 15.8 miles from the coast of Newfoundland at their closest points. However, there is also a small island with a lighthouse belonging to Newfoundland called Green Island that is located between Langlade and Saint-Pierre.

General remarks:

  • The WIKIMEDIA COMMONS Atlas of the World is an organized and commented collection of geographical, political and historical maps available at Wikimedia Commons. The main page is therefore the portal to maps and cartography on Wikimedia. That page contains links to entries by country, continent and by topic as well as general notes and references.
  • Every entry has an introduction section in English. If other languages are native and/or official in an entity, introductions in other languages are added in separate sections. The text of the introduction(s) is based on the content of the Wikipedia encyclopedia. For sources of the introduction see therefore the Wikipedia entries linked to. The same goes for the texts in the history sections.
  • Historical maps are included in the continent, country and dependency entries.
  • The status of various entities is disputed. See the content for the entities concerned.
  • The maps of former countries that are more or less continued by a present-day country or had a territory included in only one or two countries are included in the atlas of the present-day country. For example the Ottoman Empire can be found in the Atlas of Turkey.
