The band was formed in 1982 with support from a 78th Fraser Highlanders re-enactment group, but the band was allowed to keep the name after support from the group ceased.

The 78th Frasers became the first non-Scottish band to win the World Pipe Band Championships, in the summer of 1987, breaking Strathclyde Police Pipe Band's (now Greater Glasgow Police Scotland Pipe Band) run of six consecutive wins.

Founding pipe major Bill Livingstone stepped down from the role in 2010 after 29 years.

The band is currently led by pipe major Doug MacRae and drum sergeant Drew Duthart. The band has won both the North American Pipe Band Championships (held in Maxville, Ontario) and the Canadian Pipe Band Championships (held in Cambridge, Ontario) a total of twelve times each. The Frasers travel to Scotland each summer to compete at the World's, and have finished in the prize list eleven times.

The band wears the 78th Fraser Highlanders Pipe Band tartan, designed for the band in 1998.
