Our History

In 1873, a group of Toronto Freemasons gathered to discuss the formation of a new lodge. With dispensation from the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master William Mercer Wilson, Doric Lodge at Toronto was formed. 

Doric Lodge at Toronto was granted dispensation on April 11, 1873. The following images are scans from the 1874 Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of AF&AM Canada.
