Commissioned on 29 Jun 1944, at Quebec City, she arrived in Bermuda on 31 Aug 1944 to carry out working-up exercises. She left on 01 Oct 1944 for Halifax, there to become a member of the newly formed EG 27, and spent the remainder of the war in that area on A/S patrol and support duty. In Jun 1945, Lasalle sailed for Esquimalt via the Panama Canal and was paid off at Esquimalt on 17 Dec 1945. She was dismantled in 1947 and her hull expended as a breakwater in 1948 at Kelsey Bay, B.C.
