About Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada

This bilingual, short-term, acute care hospital provides ultra-specialized orthopaedic care to children from coast to coast in Canada, the U.S. and around the world.

Affiliated with McGill University, the hospital is equipped with a Simulation Centre and a Motion Analysis Centre to encourage excellence and innovation in terms of health, teaching and research. Resident doctors and health professionals benefit from our amenities on the Glen site to perfect their training and experience. In addition to offering a care environment centered on patients and families, the hospital is present in communities across Canada, thanks to telemedicine, outreach clinics and satellite clinics. Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada has been helping kids reach their full potential for 90 years and counting.

What is a Freemason?


Freemasons come from all walks of life, but in order to become a Mason you must meet a few simple criteria:

  • You must be a male, at least 18 years of age 
  • You must profess a belief in a Supreme Being
  • You must be a man of good morals and reputation

In order to join you must seek admission by your own free will, and you must be recommended by a current Freemason, unanimously elected to membership and willing to assume an obligation to the fraternity.


As you follow the path of Masonry you will have the opportunity to earn three symbolic degrees representing the lessons of Masonry: Entered Apprentice (beginner), Fellowcraft (intermediate) and Master Mason (expert). All Shriners are Master Masons, but not all Freemasons go on to become Shriners.

What is a Shriner?

If you hold the title of Master Mason in Freemasonry, you qualify and are invited to join the Shriners. In order to become a Shriner you must ask a current Shriner to support and sponsor your application.
