Grand Lodge

BC and Yukon






In 1999 the Nechako Lodge adopted the Mentor Program, which is based on the same program developed by Victoria Columbia Lodge No. 1, in order to provide an organized approach to help men who were expressed an interested in Masonry to make a decision as to whether or not to become involved in Masonry, based on a clear understanding of what was expected of a member. If after careful consideration the decision were to join, then the Mentor Program would become the basis of educating the new Mason on the Craft and increase the retention of members.


Each individual is assigned a Mentor, whose responsibility is to be the guide for the candidate and to be seeing the program completed. The Mentor is not designed to replace the Member who makes the proposal of your membership, but to be a resource and friend.


The Nechako Lodge Mentor Program incorporates the Grand Lodge of British Columbia and Yukon�s Manual of Instruction and Improvement which has been developed to cover the essential information, which could help a new Mason, understand the main aims and purposes of Freemasonry in this jurisdiction. The Nechako Lodge�s Mentor Program is also approved and encouraged by the Grand Lodge of British Columbia and Yukon. Our Mentor Program is split into five: Seeker, Candidate, Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft and Master Mason. Each package will be presented after the completion of the degree. It is the wish of the brethren of Nechako Lodge and of the great jurisdiction of British Columbia and Yukon that members will gain firm understanding of our fraternity as they go through the program. It is hoped that it will spur you to study in dept the history, philosophy, symbolism and eclecticism of Freemasonry
