HMCS Mayflower was a Flower-class corvette that served in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War II. The corvette was commissioned on December 22, 1941, and played a vital role in convoy escort duties across the Atlantic. Its primary mission was to protect merchant ships from German U-boats and surface raiders.

Named after the Mayflower, the ship famous for transporting the Pilgrims to North America in 1620, HMCS Mayflower participated in various convoy missions and engaged in anti-submarine warfare operations. The Flower-class corvettes were known for their effectiveness in countering German U-boat threats during the Battle of the Atlantic.

HMCS Mayflower was decommissioned on July 25, 1945, after the end of World War II. The ship contributed significantly to the Allied efforts in securing vital sea routes during a critical period of the war.
