Welcome to the RCMP Pipes, Drums and Dancers of the National Capital Region
The Band serves communities policed by the RCMP in Ontario, Quebec and the NCR itself. The members of the Pipeband are comprised of active members of the RCMP along with citizen volunteers who come together to share and showcase their musical talent and perform for the communities they serve.
Celtic music has a powerful appeal to young and old alike and this initiative provides a unique opportunity to bring the community closer to its national police force. The Band and Dancers perform at dozens of events each year for local, national and international audiences.

Welcome Pipe Major Douglas MacLeod
As those close to us know, Pipe Major Graeme Ogilvie has decided to step aside after over fifteen years of service to our band and the RCMP.
We would like to introduce Pipe Major Douglas MacLeod, RCMP Pipes, Drums and Dancers National Division. Pipe Major MacLeod has an extraordinary background, as a piper, a pipe major and a senior military officer. The band will continue to be in exceptional hands. Pipe Major Ogilvie will still play with the band and we thank him for his steadfast leadership.
Please join us in welcoming our new Pipe Major to the RCMP Pipes, Drums and Dancers family.
