The Treaty of Ryswick was signed in 1697 and it ended the war between France and the Grand Alliance of Spain, England, and Holland. It also brought and end to hostilities in North American between the French and the Algonquin's on one side and the English and the Iroquois on the other. Due to restricted communications between Europe and the Americas, the peace was not known of in North America until 2 months after it had been signed.

The terms of the treaty returned Nova Scotia to the French after it had been captured by the English during the war. This return of Nova Scotia included the Fortress of Louisbourg which was to become the anchor of the French defensive system in French North America.
