The "Indian Missionary Record" known as the "Indian Record" from 1957 onwards, was published ten times a year by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.

The Record was founded in 1938 at Qu'Appelle Indian School in Lebret Saskatchewan. Articles in the Record focused on Indigenous issues, events at Residential Schools, and legal decisions impacting Aboriginal people in Canada. The majority of the Residential School and Mission content focused on areas which the Grey Nuns were involved with. The tag line for the Record was "A National Publication for the Indians of Canada."
