Built by Burrard's, Vancouver, YUKON was commissioned on 25 May 1963 and, manned by east-coast personnel, sailed for Halifax on 27 July 1963. On 05 Jan 1965, she departed for Esquimalt. On 04 May 1970, HMCS PROVIDER 508, HMCS MACKENZIE 261, HMCS YUKON 263 and HMCS TERRA NOVA 259 departed Esquimalt for a Far East cruise - she carried out exercises with units of the Australian, New Zealand, Japanese and U.S. navies, incidentally making visits to Kobe, Osaka and Sasebo. YUKON was flagship for the NATO squadron in 1974 that was alongside Lisbon when the Portuguese Rebellion started.  Crew members were on the upper deck when the machine gun fire commenced and were told to "hit the deck". On completion of her mid-life refit in 1975, YUKON became a member of Training Group Pacific. Her DELEX refit was carried out by Burrard Yarrow at Esquimalt, between 28 May 1984 and 16 Jan 1985. During her career, YUKON steamed more than 792,000 nautical miles and visited some 30 foreign ports. She was paid off on 03 Dec 1993 and eventually sold to the San Diego Oceans Foundation. On 25 Apr 1999 she left Vancouver in tow for San Diego, where she was to be ceremoniously sunk on 15 Jul 1999 as a sport-divers' wreck, but she flooded in rough weather at the intended site and sank the day before.
