Toronto Signals Band
The Toronto Signals Band, since 1926, has performed for audiences throughout Canada and the United States, in events such as parades, concerts, tattoos and drum corps shows.
The Toronto Signals Band then were known as the 2nd Armoured Divisional Signals Regiment. Subsequent changes in the merging of 2nd and 8th Signals Regiments brought about the name of the Toronto Signals Regiment. In 1959, the band left the Canadian Army to form the famed Drum Corp “Canada’s Marching Ambassadors”, well-known in Canada and the United States. Since the integration of the Canadian Armed Forces in the early 1970's, “Sigs” as they are affectionately known, have carried on as a voluntary organization, maintaining the rich tradition and heritage of their former members.
Although the band is associated with the 32 Signal Regiment of the Canadian Armed Forces Reserve, the band is not part of the military; however, it performs as the Duty Band on a volunteer basis.
Since the Corps inception, the band has won more than 400 awards and have truly been acclaimed ‘Canada’s Marching Ambassadors’.
In 1999, the Band welcomed women to join the ranks. Today, they make up 20 percent of the membership and have been a great asset to keeping the Signals’ history and traditions alive. Over the years, many bonds and friendships have been established with those who have come to know the ‘Sigs’ and will continue in the future.
