          Part of Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI), Lacombe Canada fonds

          This sub-series consists of records created or acquired in the course of the administration of publishing companies established or maintained by the Oblates in the Province of Alberta-Saskatchewan.

          The publishing companies allowed for access to the various Francophone communities served by the Congregation. In 1928 the Association Canadienne-Française de l'Alberta (ACFA) decided to establish its own paper in Edmonton, Alberta, called La Survivance, and an accompanying printing company, La Survivance Printing Ltd.. Imprimerie Canadienne Ltd. was incorporated in October the same year and a contract was signed with La Survivance Printing Ltd. on the 16th of February 1929 stipulating that the latter was to lease, use and maintain the printing machines of Imprimerie Canadienne Ltd. All three companies, La Survivance Printing Ltd., La Survivance, and Imprimerie Canadienne Ltd., were financed and controlled by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Despite the financial problems of the journal, the Oblates provided financing and unpaid qualified workers until 1973, when the journal (which had changed its name to Le Franco-Albertain in 1967) and the printing company were sold to ACFA for the symbolic amount of 1 dollar. The paper would eventually become Le Franco.

          The Oblates published Le Patriot de l’Ouest out of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, after acquiring the paper when the former publisher, la Bonne Presse limitée, was liquidated in 1933. The Oblates operated the paper under Le Patriote Publishing Company. In 1941, the paper merged with the Winnipeg newspaper La liberté to form Liberté et le patriote.

          The records include administrative correspondence related to the personnel, operation, sales and maintenance of Compagnie la Bonne Presse limitée, Imprimerie Canadienne, the La Survivance building and Le Frano-Albertain.
