Hi
We did that. Sent ours Special delivery with a special delivery pre-paid inside the envelope. Go to the post office and get them to do the envelopes for you. They will weigh contents and then do a self addressed return one for the same value to pop in the envelope with your passports. No problem. Cost under £10 for the two envelopes, but a small price to pay for peace of mind, and guarantees next day delivery. The only thing we could do was track the one going to CHC, but as we did not know when they sent the second one back, could not track that one.

we did expresspost which were large cardboard type envelopes which were both prepaid and trackable. the expresspost were guaranteed 2 day delivery within Canada (we had to send ours to Fort Erie who then couriered them to Buffalo.
we put one of the envelopes with our address in the first making sure that we removed the tracking label so that we could track it when it was returned and with Canada post you could register your email address against the tracking number so that you knew when it was returned to you. This cost us just over $50 for both envelopes.

i read in aprevious post a while back that cic pay for the postage so you just need to send an addressed envelope and not a stamped one. i hope this is right as i sent mine yesterday with no stamp on it!

i thought if cic would pay for the return they would send it safe and not with a stamp,surely it would be there responsibility if they returned it with just a stamp and it got lost

You don't need to include any stamp or return courier. CIC should return via recorded delivery. In my case they did anyway and i've read others on here had the same service.
