Welcome to Chemainus Lodge No. 114

Having adopted the name of Chemainus Lodge on March 6, 1926, the Masonic Brethren of Chemainus sent a letter, along with a petition to the Grand Lodge of British Columbia (now the Grand Lodge of British Columbia and Yukon) requesting support for the Chemainus effort to form a Lodge. Chemainus Lodge No. 114 Ancient Free & Accepted Masons received it's Charter July 16, 1927.


Chemainus Lodge is in District 27 on Vancouver Island, and meets in St. John's Masonic Temple, in Ladysmith.  The Lodge proudly performs the Emulation Ritual.

Marking our 96th Year


Welcome to our Web page.


Chemainus Lodge practices the Emulation Ritual, as performed by the United Grand Lodge of England since the early 1700's. 

Brethren, our October Communication is pushed back one week to allow all to celebrate the joy and warmth of family and friends over the holiday.  May all the good things of life be yours, not only during Thanksgiving, but throughout the year.  And may that joy and warmth be on display always as we meet on the level.  I look forward to seeing all of you in Lodge, and I look forward to seeing growth in our Lodge as we move towards our 100th Anniversary, in 2026/27.

Sincerely and Fraternally

Very Worshipful Brother Terry van Seters

Worshipful Master
