Lodge History

On the 12th day of February, 1922, a meeting was held at the Chemical Building, University of Toronto, for the purpose of discussing a proposal to form a new lodge in the Western section of Toronto. At that meeting, which was attended by numerous highly esteemed brethren, it was unanimously agreed to proceed with the formation of a new Lodge.

Among several names submitted for the new Lodge, “Unity” was chosen. It was decided that the most suitable meeting place would be the Masonic Temple, Young Street and Davenport Road on the forth Saturday of each month.

Unity Lodge was duly constituted on Saturday, April 29, 1922 by Right. Wor. R. B. Dargavel, D.D.G.M. for Toronto District West No. 11. He was assisted by many Grand Lodge Officers. Wor. Bro. E. J. Repath was appointed first Worshipful Master. The slate of officers for Unity Lodge is shown below as taken from the first lodge summons.

Today, Unity Lodge meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm, at the Etobicoke Masonic Temple on 596 Renforth Drive, Etobicoke.
