New France was a Federation colony near Deep Space 9.

In 2369, Jadzia Dax ordered the computer of the space station Deep Space 9 to create a historical database for all known wormhole activity. The computer requested indication for time parameters, to which she replied all known occurences. For completion of the function, the computer needed subspace link-ups with Federation computers. She then ordered the creation of subspace links with the Nehru colony, New France colony, and Corado I transmitter array. Her request was part of a plan of overloading the computer after it was learned that the software lifeform Pup was disabling the facility. When the plan was successful, Pup was manually transferred to six isolinear rods. (DS9: "The Forsaken")

This colony was only mentioned in dialogue.
The New France colony was presumably named for the country of France.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 47) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), this colony was located in the New France system, in the Alpha Quadrant. This was a binary system with a K-class star and a G-class star.By 2378, this colony had become a Federation member.
