This page and all related to it provides an outline of the Fleet Ship Classes to which other pages will eventually be linked with more detailed information. Not all ships that served Canada are listed - for example, the USN submarines loaned to Canada do not appear here.

Note also that a number of the earlier ships such as the Cruisers and Tribal destroyers were built in the U.K. as, indeed, were the Carriers and, subsequently, the Canadian submarines.

A number of the Minesweepers were sold to be converted into yachts or commercial vessels.

The Iroquois Class (DDH 280’s) has been used as a prototype showing what may be included in the detail pages. This area of the site is very much a work in progress.
