HMCS CHIGNECTO J160
Commissioned at Vancouver on 31 Oct 1941, Chignecto spent her whole career on the west coast, alternating between Esquimalt Force and Prince Rupert Force. She was paid off on 03 Nov 1945, at Esquimalt and sold in 1946 to the Union Steamship Co., Vancouver, for conversion to a coastal merchant ship. The conversion was not proceeded with, and in 1951 an offer to purchase her was received from a San Francisco firm. She was later scrapped in 1957 at the Point Hope Shipyard, Victoria, BC, Canada.
