did the edict of nantes affect new or old france?

I know what that it granted religious acceptance to French Protestants.

But did this apply to France or America


-If it was issued in France, why would this cause Protestant Huguenots to move to New France if they had some religious tolerance in Old France?

    1598, decree promulgated at Nantes by King Henry IV to restore internal peace in France, which had been torn by the Wars of Religion; the edict defined the rights of the French Protestants.
