Built by Harland & Wolff, Belfast. Laid Down 20 November 1941.

Launched 29 July 1943. Completed 25 May 1945.

Transferred to Royal Canadian Navy on completion and renamed Ontario. Broken up at Osaka, 1960.

Ontario sailed to join the 4th Cruiser Squadron in the Pacific Theatre, but was too late to see active service, although she was employed in the operations at Hong Kong, Manila and in Japan. She returned home for refit, arriving at Esquimalt on 27 November 1945. She was used for training duties postwar until paid off on 15 October 1958. She arrived at Osaka for breaking up on 19 November 1960.
