WHEREAS:
There is a latent desire to accord mutual recognition one with the
other, with rights and/or privileges of visitation with Grand Lodge and
Lodges assembled,

Therefore be it resolved:
That the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge, Free and Accepted
Masons, Province of Ontario and Jurisdiction, in order to establish a
more perfect Brotherhood, hereby agrees to accord fraternal recognition
for purposes of inter-visitation to all, or any, of the abovementioned
Canadian Grand Lodges of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons which may
wish to accord reciprocal fraternal recognition to the Most Worshipful
Prince Hall Grand Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons, Province of Ontario
and Jurisdiction.

Further, be it understood that this resolution shall be interpreted to
be a progressive step whereby Masonry becomes the Centre of union and
the means of conciliating true friendships among persons that must have
remained at a perpetual distance, as has been an objective from time
immemorial.
