Built by Russel Brother's Ltd, Owen Sound, Ont., Barkerville was delivered by CN rail to Vancouver to serve on the West coast. On 17 Dec 1945 Barkerville sank at the entrance to Bedwell Harbour while towing the corvette Hespeler to mooring. Unlike her sister Marysville, Barkerville was not raised and repaired.
