Ottawa District Two Mentorship Committee

R.W. Bro. Peter Harbert has been appointed Chairman of the District Mentoring Committee. Contact:

Mentor Program

The Grand Lodge Mentor Program was established by the Grand Master M.W. Bro. Lou Copeland in 1986.  Since that time we have had various versions of Mentoring Programs without much success at creating two essential generations of well rounded Brethren. We have slowly declined in numbers and the Culture of Masonry in our Lodges has been sadly diluted.  With the loss of critical mass in membership and the loss of much of our Masonic Tradition so have we lost that Masonic Pride that we valued so much in our beloved Craft.

As a result Grand Lodge is looking to improve the Mentor Program by creating a mentoring “structure” that starts with the District Mentor chairman who will be responsible to ensure each Worshipful Master appoints a Lodge Mentor. Then the Lodge Mentor will ensure that each Candidate and Lodge Officer have a mentor. In addition to these brethren, he plans on having Roving Mentors that will support the District and Lodge Mentor chairmen.

The current Mentor Program provides:

  • Mentoring Program for Candidates;
  • Entered Apprentice Resource Material;
  • Fellow Craft Resource Material;
  • Lodge Mentor Training Guide; and
  • Lodge Officer Mentoring Guide.

As part of the improving the Mentor Program, the Grand Lodge Mentor Committee has established the following:

  • Mentoring Matters – a periodic newsletter; and
  • A Mentoring Appeal.

Ottawa District 2 has established a Mentor Committee under a District Mentor Chairman with Lodge Mentor Chairman as members.

The following is a urgent message from
The Grand Master regarding CoVID 19 (coronavirus)


Dear Sirs & Brethren:

Please distribute this urgent communication from The Grand Master to all your members.

A PDF version is attached for your convenience.

March 13, 2020
Due to the rapidly evolving Public Health advice concerning the novel coronavirus (now named COVID-19) it has been decided to cancel all Masonic events for an indefinite period. This includes lodge meetings, memorial services and social events.
Those lodges who have requested dispensations to cancel or postpone in the past two days, will be covered by this blanket dispensation. We will continue to monitor the situation and will inform you when it is safe to re-open.
Depending on the length of time this situation lasts, there will be several other administrative adjustments which we will have to make. We will inform you of these in good time.
Please remember your vulnerable brethren and check in on them by phone or e-mail regularly.
Continue to follow the advice of the health authorities and be safe.
David J. Cameron
Grand Master
