How can I become a Mason?

To become a Freemason you must:

  • Be a man of at least 18 years of age
  • Be of good moral character
  • Have a personal belief in a Supreme Being (the definition of a Supreme Being is a personal matter for each individual)
  • Decide to become a Mason of "your own free will and accord" without expectation of any material gain or benefits
  • Be loyal to your country
  • Be dedicated to providing for your own family
  • Have a sincere determination to conduct yourself in a manner that will earn the respect and trust of others
  • Possess a desire to help others through community service and universal benevolence

TO PURSUE YOUR INTEREST IN BECOMING A MEMBER follow these steps:

  • Talk with someone you know who is a Freemason
  • If you do not know anyone who is a Mason, contact a Lodge in your neighbourhood
  • Masons do not solicit for members. You'll need to express your personal interest in joining Freemasonry
  • You may be invited to meet with the Lodge Committee or selected Members to discuss your application and to answer your questions.
  • Subject to you being considered eligible and properly motivated you will be asked to complete an application for membership and return it to your local Lodge Secretary

Your application will be presented to a Lodge Meeting and a secret ballot conducted in which Members vote on your suitability. You will be notified of the result and invited to attend a Lodge Meeting for your initiation into Membership.
