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 Honorable Alexander Keith was 'unanimously and with great enthusiasm' elected as the first Most Excellent Grand High Priest.
