The NWT Arts Council regularly provides the NWT Pipe Band with funding that enables us to host a weekend workshop to develop our skills. This often involves bringing up instructors from southern Canada – which is never inexpensive!


The Yellowknife Community Foundation generously provided the NWT Pipe Band with a $5,000 grant through its Yellowknife Community Fund to help us purchase a whole new set of Andante drums in our 2013-2014 season.

The City of Yellowknife provided funding in 2020 to cost share the purchase of five new band kilts in the official tartan of the Northwest Territories.  In 2013 the City of Yellowknife provided funding which enabled the NWT Pipe Band to purchase a set of 15 matched Dunbar chanters. 

Thank you to Rio Tinto for sponsoring our new NWT Pipe Band banner for parades and other public functions! The banner was designed and produced by Janet Pace and her company Signed.

Thank you to Royal Canadian Legion Vincent Massey Branch No. 164 for donating the use of the basement of the Branch for piping and drumming practices on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings.
