Yes, the passport has to be returned to the issuing office for cancelation.

Do i need to inform the visa office of my intent of cancellation first and then send my pasport after hearing back from the visa office or could i just mail my pasports straight to the visa office with a letter requesting refund ?

Can i take my pasports in person ? How long would it take ?

Can i get the refund after the expiry of the visa ?

Thx.

You can do it by mail or in person (if that office deals with clients in person) You will need to enclose a letter stating that you wish to cancel your COPR. It takes 4-6 months for the refund.

Wrong, it's the Right of Permanent Resident Fee, if you don't "land" it is refundable, whether it has expired or not.

so if you are refused a PR visa do they automatically send you back your fee or do you have to write and request it?

If you are refused, CIC SHOULD process the refund of RPRF automatically, but I would follow up with a written request so that it doesn't fall through the cracks.
