Why is there no Lodge in Trois-Rivières, Québec, Canada? I know many members on this site are from the states but the city i live in Trois-Rivieres, Québec the city is in the middle of all the Major City’s in the Province. All Members could meet there and it would be a few minutes away. I am saying this because i would like to see a lodge in my city… ( when i was younger i wished that the world lodge would be here and that Members from all around the world would come here to meet).

I don’t know what the rules are in that particular jurisdiction, but here 7 Master Masons can petition the Grand Lodge in order to form a new Masonic Lodge in a location. There is an approval process involved, but if the area is not saturated with lodges, they have a valid reason for the formation, and the Master Masons involved have exceptional character then they stand a good chance at approval.

So maybe you need to look into the possibility of forming a new lodge in your area pending your GL’s rules and regs on that process.

When you become a Freemason you will be able to discuss the idea of a new Lodge with other Freemasons in that area.

Er, what do you mean by ‘the world lodge’? There’s no such thing.

Thanks M.DHoward for your answer but i have no authority on what happens in the décisions that a lodge or Lodges take for now because i am not a Mason. Maybe in the futur…

Thanks for your answer M.George, it was just an idea i had when i was younger a place where everybody from around the world could come and meet. Like a big non stop supper where you could see people from your fraternity, i know some of you meet in your travels as i was told in other conversations. I thought of this because i am a Member of another fraternity and they have a world convention every year and it is very nice for those who have the chance to go there… it was just an idea but for right now i am an outsider sharing you on a idea he had… Maybe will i be a mason in the futur but your fraternity is big and everybody has their own thoughts and it’s hard to come with such a descision all together…
