Oblate Indian-Eskimo Council sub-series

This sub-series consists of records created or acquired by the Oblate Indian-Eskimo Council and its predecessors. The Council was established in Ottawa in 1936 as the Indian Welfare and Training Commission, the goal of which was to coordinate Oblate apostolic work in First Nations missions. This would expand to include the work in the missions, coordinate educational and legal objectives, and to represent, safeguard and enhance the interests of this work to the federal government. The commission was a national organization made up of an administrative committee and those responsible for missions, that is, Oblate Bishops, Vicars Apostolic (later Vice-Provincials) and the Provincials of the Canadian Provinces. The commission was known variously as the Indian and Eskimo Welfare Commission, the Indian and Eskimo Welfare Commission of the Oblates, and the Oblate Indian-Eskimo Council. In 1962, Indianescom was established as a civil corporation alongside the religious organization of the Council. As the Oblates reduced their roles in Indian Residential Schools, Indianescom became more of a liaison body with the federal government and represented the Oblates mostly on federal policy. Both the Oblate Indian-Eskimo Council and Indianescom were dissolved in 1976.

The records in this sub-series include Council records, national and provincial material relevant to the province, administration and financial records, and education records acquired in the course of the life of the Council.
