What is the Scottish Rite ?

The Scottish Rite is one of the three branches of Freemasonry in which a Master Mason, (3rd Degree), may proceed after he has completed the three degrees of Symbolic, Blue or Craft Lodge Masonry. Although similar, in Canada we prefer using the term Craft Lodge. To become a Scottish Rite Mason, you must first be a Master Mason in good standing. You may approach a 32° Scottish Rite Mason to inquire about the next step in joining the Scottish Rite.

There are ten Scottish Rite jurisdictions in Canada.
