Unfortunately, I can't find the fax sheet I prepared to CBSA requesting that they return to us the passport of my husband.  However I do remember that I just used a general fax number which I got from one of the forms they had given my husband in one of his appointments and to the attention of a staff whom my husband dealt with in the past. 
 
Several weeks later, we received a letter from CBSA stating that they will forward the passport to the Scarborough CIC office where my husband was going to "land".  I faxed the CBSA letter to Scarborough and copied CBSA on that fax as well.  CIC is aware since that time is of the essence so although we did not hear back from Scarborough right away, they made sure there was enough time for us to get it in time for his landing. (My husband's passport expired so CIC made sure it that they give it to back to us factoring in the processing time for passport renewal).
 
The key is to follow-up with CIC call centre and CBSA to ensure it does not lost in mounds of paper.  Space out your follow-up calls and faxes.
 
Good luck 1212 and Nevergiveup.

Hello 1212,
Please let us know if you did get your passport back and how you did to get. I'm having the same issue and just don't know who to write to. CBSA or GTEC.
 
Merry Christmas and Happy new year.

Any how... YOU ARE CLOSER THAN MANY HERE AROUND Wink!
thank you, thank you very muchSmile
