Becoming a Mason

How do you become a Mason? By taking the first step and asking a freemason about freemasonry. Long standing tradition requires a man to first ask a freemason. Freemasons don’t ask men to join, but once asked will be happy to answer all questions you might have.

What is Required to become a Freemason?

To be eligible for membership in the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of British Columbia and Yukon an applicant must satisfy the following qualifications:

  1. The ability to read and write in English.

  2. Have resided in British Columbia or the Yukon for the previous twelve months.

  3. “Shall be a man, of the full age of 21 years, free born and capable of supporting himself and those dependent upon him.”

  4. Be, in clear conscience, able to answer the following questions in the affirmative:

    • Do you seriously and upon your honour declare that uninfluenced by mercenary or other unworthy motives, and unbiased by the improper solicitations of friends, you freely and voluntarily offer yourself a candidate for the mysteries of Freemasonry?

    • Do you seriously and upon your honour declare that you are prompted to solicit the privileges of Freemasonry by a favorable opinion conceived of the Institution and a desire for knowledge?

    • Do you believe in the existence of a Supreme Being?

 

Initiates are required to pay an Initiation Fee. Members are expected to pay Annual Dues and be actively involved in the working of their lodge. This requires a commitment of two to four evenings a month and the effort to study and understand Freemasonry’s philosophy, history, ritual and practices. As in any society, the member can only get out of it what he puts into it.
