The Royal Arch Masons of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island bid you a cordial welcome
to our official Grand Chapter Website'


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.

The 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.
