Freemasons in Ontario

Toronto West District

In 2006, the alignment of the Toronto districts was changed. The district, known as Toronto 1, became Toronto West, as it is today.

Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that arose from obscure origins in the late 16th to early 17th centuries probably in the stonemason guilds of Scotland. Freemasonry exists in various forms all over the world, with a membership estimated at around three million. At its heart, Freemasonry is a self-improvement organization. Through three initiation rituals, lectures and other ceremonies, combined with social and charitable activities, Freemasons seek to improve themselves as they improve the communities in which they live. To join, one must believe in a Supreme Being, be upright, moral and honest in character, and be recommended by a Mason.

Freemasonry is kindness in the home; honesty in business; courtesy toward others; dependability in ones work; compassion for the unfortunate; resistance to evil; help for the weak; concern for good government; support for education; and above all, a reverence for God and love of fellow man. Through the influence of good men Freemasonry and its ideals continue to thrive around the world.

Freemasonry employs the tools and instruments of stone masons to teach a system of morality, friendship and brotherly love, hence, the standard emblem of Freemasonry is the square and compasses. In Ontario Freemasonry is organized locally into lodges and supervised by the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario. There are numerous appendant and affiliate Masonic organizations such as the Order of the Eastern Star, Scottish Rite, York Rite and the Shrine. Each of these organizations has its own leadership.

A Message from our DDGM

Brethren, a warm greeting to all. I fall short of words to express my emotions and gratitude for the opportunity I have once again received to be the District Deputy Grand Master of Toronto West District.

I extend my sincere thanks to the brethren of Toronto West District who placed their faith in me, that I feel confident to be able to discharge my duties and responsibilities as the District Deputy Grand Master.

Together we are a team, and a team is like a toolset, no one tool can do all the jobs, but together we can, so let’s join our hands together to continue to work as a team in the day-to-day functioning of our lodges and district for the well-being of our fraternity.

Let’s take our fraternity in Toronto West District to greater heights of success.

As we give our heartfelt thank you to our District Secretary, W. Bro. Gordon Tom for the great work he has done in serving our district in the last year; I also humbly ask for your continued support to our new District Secretary, W. Bro. Jeffery Phoenix.

Thank you once again for believing in me and I will try my best to fulfill your expectations and that of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario.

Thank you, S & F
R. W. Bro. Ken Singh
