Louisburg was a seized vessel (ex W.A.F.) taken over by the RCMP Marine Section in 1935 and named Louisburg. She was sold commercial 28 July 1939 and was subsequently purchased by the RCN 05 August 1941. To avoid conflict with the existing HMCS LOUISBURG, the RCN changed her name to Sydney River. In 1942 her name was changed to HC 100 (ex-Sydney River). She was sold in 1946.
