Joining Ashlar Lodge No.3

Brethren in good standing with other Masonic Lodges who would like more information about affiliating with Ashlar Lodge, No.3 may contact our Lodge Secretary at

For those prospective members who are not currently Freemasons, Ashlar Lodge, No. 3 always welcomes suitable new candidates for initiation into Freemasonry in general and into Ashlar Lodge, No. 3 in particular.

For prospective Freemasons, we recommend you do some basic research on Freemasonry before making your Petition for Initiation.  We have a page on Becoming A Mason which will help you with research on what Freemasonry is about.


Here are two informative videos of Rick Wakeman (formerly of Yes and Strawbs before embarking in a very successful solo career) discussing his experiences in Freemasonry:

To assist your research further, here are some web pages on the Grand Lodge of B.C. & Yukon website on Becoming A Freemason, An Introduction to the History of Freemasonry, a number of Essays and Papers on Masonic topics, some biographies of well known Freemasons and famous Freemasons and links to other websites which may be useful to your research into Freemasonry.

For additional information, please see our Becoming A Freemason page on this site.

We are compiling a list of Suggested Reading On Freemasonry which may assist you. Please keep checking back; we should have it on the site soon.

Prospective members who are already Freemasons and who may wish to affiliate with Ashlar Lodge, No. 3 should contact our Lodge Secretary at

We welcome all Brethren in good standing who wish to affiliate with Ashlar Lodge, No. 3. Any Brethren in good standing who have moved to the Nanaimo area from other parts of B.C. or from other Masonic jurisdictions are always welcome as visitors to Ashlar Lodge, No. 3.
