Built by Hunter Boats, Orillia, Ont., she was delivered to the RCN on 01 Nov 1942. While she flew the White Ensign, she was not commissioned into the RCN but instead was listed as a tender to HMCS Sambro, the depot ship for escorts (tenders were not commissioned vessels). In Feb 1944 and Jan 1945, Q092 was listed a part of the 77th ML Flotilla. Sold in 1947 possibly to Radium Chemicals of Vancouver and re-named Suzette No. 1.
