The purpose of the Scottish Rite in Canada, simply stated, is to seek which is the most worth in the world;
 to exalt the dignity of every person, the human side of our daily activities and the maximum service to humanity; to aid mankind search in God's universe for identity, for development and for destiny, and thereby achieve better men in a better world, happier men in a happier world and wiser men in a wiser world.
 The whole of Canada constitutes a single Scottish Rite jurisdiction with some 27,000 members. In Canada the term "Scottish Rite" is a short form for "The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of Canada". 
Application for membership in the Scottish Rite is open to members in good standing in any recognized Craft Lodge who are Master Masons. Continued membership in a Craft Lodge is required to maintain good standing in the Scottish Rite.


The Scottish Rite has been active in the Ottawa Region since 1890. Members hail from Ottawa District 1, Ottawa District 2, St. Lawrence, Eastern and Frontenac Districts of the GRC as well as Lodges in the Western part of the Province of Québec. It consists of 3 bodies; the Ottawa Lodge of Perfection (conferring the 4th through 14th Degrees), the Murray Chapter of the Rose Croix (conferring the 15th through 18th Degrees), and the Ottawa Consistory (conferring the 19th through 32nd Degrees). Degrees are presented using drama. There are casts of characters, which portray each Degree utilizing costumes, staging, sound and light and music. In addition, the Scottish Rite supports numerous projects related to solving "The Puzzles of the Mind" via the Scottish Rite Charitable Foundation. At the present time there are approximately 600 Scottish Rite Masons in Ottawa and the surrounding areas that belong to the Valley of Ottawa.

There are three main bodies that confer degrees and orders in York Rite Masonry. There are others in which one may join either by application or by invitation. The Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Province of Ontario is the main body of this system. Membership in the Royal Arch is preeminent for membership in all York Rite bodies. Grand Lodge is in amity with Grand Chapter as it is an appendant body of The Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario.

Royal Arch Masonry is stylised as the completion of the Master Mason Degree. To acquire membership in Royal Arch Masonry one must be a Master Mason in good standing of a Lodge in Ontario. The Grand Council of Royal and Select Masters of Ontario [Cryptic Rite Masons] is in amity with Grand Chapter as is Sovereign Great Priory of Canada [Knights Templar]. The Order of the High Priesthood, and Knight York Rite Cross of Honour are also York Rite bodies one can make application to. The Red Cross of Constantine [Conclave] and York Rite Sovereign College are by invitation only.
