The Mandate of Pipe Bands in the Canadian Forces is to:
Provide musical support to the Canadian Forces. Pipe Band engagements promote the military ethos, foster high morale, esprit de Corps, and thus operational effectiveness.
Pipe Bands are also a very effective element of our community outreach program, designed to enhance relations with the civilian community. They also make Canadians aware of the Armed Forces by projecting a positive image and to contribute to the preservation of Canadian musical heritage.
The Mission of Pipe Bands in the Canadian Forces is to:
- Proudly represent the Canadian Forces in all of the engagements performed
- Satisfy authorized requests from Canadian Forces clients for music services
- Satisfy authorized music requests from federal, provincial and municipal governments and any other authorized clients
- Provide a venue where the art of piping and drumming can be taught, practiced and demonstrated to the military and civilian community
- Contribute to the preservation of the Canadian military musical heritage
