The CC class submarine was the first class of submarines used by the Royal Canadian Navy.

They were originally purchased by the province of British Columbia from a shipbuilder in Seattle, Washington, which had built the submarines for the Chilean Navy.

The CC class are similar to the British C class submarines, and served as prototypes for the Holland 602 type submarine.
