HMCS CH-15 was a H class submarine used by the Royal Canadian Navy. Purchased in 1919 from a Quincy, MA ship builder and replaced the CC class submarines. Like the CC class subs, the H class did not last long and was scrapped in 1922. The RCN did not acquire further submarines until after World War II.
