The Record was a Canadian music industry magazine that featured record charts, trade news and opinions. David Farrell launched the publication in mid-1981, continuing its printed version until August 1999 when The Record continued as a website-based publication. The singles and albums chart featured in the magazine were featured as the Canadian lists in the Hits of the World section in Billboard.

In March 2001, shortly after the demise of competing publication RPM, Farrell announced the complete shutdown of The Record. The demise was blamed on insufficient advertising and online subscription revenues.[2] The Record editor Steve McLean began the Canadian Music Network publication in May of that year.[3]
