The purpose of the Mess is the building of "esprit de corps" and comradeship, and to provide entertainment, goods, services, and amenities to all of its members.

The Mess has a vital role in fostering the traditions of the Canadian Forces and in particular the customs and traditions of the Canadian Navy. Therefore, wherever feasible and desirable, Naval customs will be used and practiced in the Mess.
