The MANDATE of the Admiral Desmond Piers Naval Association is to maintain and encourage
comradeship, friendship and a spirit of good fellowship among former and serving members of the Canadian
Navy and Merchant Navy as well as other navies and seagoing people of the world.  In general to enjoy the
camaraderie of all Shipmates who have salt water in their veins.

Our official constitutional objectives are:

1. Support the National RCNA.
2. Be non-political and non-sectarian.  
3. Loyal to the reigning Sovereign and Canada.
4. Give friendship and mutual assistance to its members.
5.  Perpetuate memories and deeds of those who gave their lives in the Naval and Merchant Services.
6. Offer benevolence and assistance in welfare work amongst members and other ex-naval personnel.
7.  Co-operate with associations with similar objectives.
8.  Engage in lawful activities to attain these objectives.

It was decided to achieve this by holding regular meetings and functions to unite these sailors and
perpetuate memories and deeds performed by them, as well as those who gave their lives in the Naval
Services.

We offer a nautical atmosphere and good fellowship to Shipmates of the Royal Canadian Navy, Shipmates
of Commonwealth Navies and the unsung heroes of the red duster, the Merchant Navy.
We meet at the
Royal Canadian Legion,
