Built at Montreal, Givenchy was commissioned there on 22 Jun 1918. On 30 Jun 1918, Givenchy was listed as a patrol vessel. She was paid off on 12 Aug 1919 at Esquimalt. She then entered the service of the Department of Marine and Fisheries as a fishery protection vessel, but was returned to the RCN on 15 Apr 1939. Though her principal function was that of accommodation ship (notably to the Fishermen's Reserve), she was actually in commission from 25 Jun 1940 to 07 Dec 1943 as accommodation vessel, Fishermen's Reserve. Sold on 19 Sep 1946, Givenchy is thought to have been broken up in the U.S. in 1953.
