The Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Nova Scotia (Canada) was
instituted on October 14, 1869 at a convention held in Halifax for that
purpose. It brought together existing Chapters within Nova Scotia and
Prince Edward Island which had been chartered under Canadian, English,
and Scottish constitutions. The Honourable Alexander Keith was
'unanimously and with great enthusiasm' elected as the first Most
Excellent Grand High Priest.
Degrees conferred in a Chapter of Royal Arch Masons are also known as
the 'Capitular Rite' degrees. The 'Capitular Rite' is part of the York
Rite of Freemasonry.
