NWMP Lodge No. 11: A Unique Masonic Experience

The Official Colours of North West Mounted Police Lodge No. 11

Instituted on October 1, 1894 at the North West Mounted Police Barracks, Regina, our lodge maintains a rich tradition founded in the opening of the Canadian West.

Originally a lodge for serving members of the force, it was opened to civilian membership in 1906. But we uphold our paramilitary heritage in our regular working. Instead of wands, our deacons carry lances in the style used by the RCMP Musical Ride. Our inner guard and tyler wield replicas of the Pattern 1821/1822 Light Cavalry Trooper's Sabre first issued to the North West Mounted Police.

Every October we commemorate our police heritage through the staging of a third degree performed by current and former RCMP members in their red serge uniforms, aided by civilian brethren in period NWMP kit and using the original lodge furniture from the NWMP Barracks.
