Commissioned at Quebec City on 28 Apr 1944, Charlottetown visited her namesake city en route to Halifax on 22 May 1944. She arrived in Bermuda on 18 Jun 1944 for a month's working-up, and on her return to Halifax was assigned to EG 16. She left Halifax on 07 Mar 1945, for Londonderry, the group having been transferred there, and was also briefly based at Portsmouth. In May she escorted two convoys to Gibraltar and two back, and in mid-Jun 1945 left 'Derry for Sydney, N.S. There she commenced a tropicalization refit that was completed at Halifax on 28 Feb 1946, and on 03 Mar 1946 left for Esquimalt. She spent the rest of the year training cadets and new entries, and on 25 Mar 1947, was paid off at Esquimalt. She was sold the same year, and her hull expended as a breakwater at Oyster Bay, B.C.
