A product of the Davie Shipbuilding Co., Lauzon, Qu'Appelle was commissioned on 14 Sep 1963, becoming a unit of Pacific Command the following spring. She was unique of her class, being fitted with a 3"50 calibre gun forward since the intended 3"70 calibre weapon was unavailable. On 28 Aug 1972, in company with Gatineau and Provider, she left Esquimalt on a four-month south Pacific cruise during which exercises were carried out with units of the Australian, New Zealand and U.S. navies. Qu'Appelle's DELEX refit was carried out between 25 May 1983 and 13 Jan 1984 by Burrard Yarrow at CFB Esquimalt. In the summer of 1986, with Yukon and Saskatchewan, she returned to Australia to attend ceremonies marking the 75th birthday of that country's navy. She was paid off on 31 Jul 1992 and sold in 1994 to a Chinese firm for $165,000.00 for breaking up.
