The Bay-class minesweepers were a class of minesweepers operated by the Royal Canadian Navy during the Cold War. The class derives its name from bays in Canada and was designed by the RCN as a replacement for World War II-era minesweepers. Twenty vessels were built for the RCN along with another four for the Turkey. The French government license built six Bay-class vessels.

Not to be confused with the Australian Bay-class minehunters.
