Habitant” is an archaic word and is a less common word for inhabitant. These days the word “inhabitant” is used and it means "one of the people who live in a particular place". A useful synonym is “denizen

Welcome, FG. Next time this type of question would go on the Vocabulary section. Rajinder has answered but If you had looked up the two words in the TFD you would have seen that Habitant, pronounced differently, can also be an archaic word for a French person in Quebec or Louisiana.
