Western District covers around 60,000 square mile area across the boreal forest of the Canadian Shield. Freemason Lodges are located in some of the larger of the far flung communities including; Kenora, Dryden, Fr. Frances, Sioux Lookout, Red Lake, Emo, Rainy River, Atikokan and Keewatin.
We embrace the remoteness and rugged beauty of Northwestern Ontario. While Masons meet in the lodge in formal black tie attire, we happily change into our outdoors wear to enjoy the fishing, hunting, hiking and other activities that define our wilderness District.
