Freemasonry has in all ages insisted that men should come to its doors of their own free will and not as a result of solicitation or from feelings of curiosity, but simply from a favourable opinion of the institution and a desire to be ranked among its members. This is to ensure that only men with the highest ideals of service to God and their fellow men are admitted into Freemasonry and to ensure that they will not in later life regret they have been persuaded to join something they would not have done of their own free will. This, however, should not prevent any Freemason from giving appropriate encouragement to a worthy man who, of his own free will, demonstrates an interest in joining the Craft. The Grand Lodge of Alberta is comprised of separate Lodges in all the larger communities. It is recommended that, in general, the candidate should join the Lodge nearest his home as he is there most likely to find the greatest community of interest with his fellow members.
