You have to withdraw your application for refugee status. The form you have to sign is called form IMM 5317B.

You will have to speak to the contact centre tomorrow and ask how to get the form and submit it.

After you do that the passport will be returned to you.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
