Default Passport Request

i am a total dummy, For some reason i never worried about getting a passport as i used my birth certificate to come over from the US to Canada, Well today i recieved a wonderful call from Immigrations asking for me to go get a passport as they are working on my file and they need me to fax them it.

My question is what is the quickest way to get a passport for immigrations from within Canada for a US citizen who has never had a passport.

Also where do i go or is this done only in the US Consulate in Canada

You should call the US consulate in Canada and ask them how to get a first
passport abroad... may not be doable... this thing about US citizen
traveling out of the country with a birth certificate is crazy in the first
place anyway... Even when Europe countries had borders, we ought to show a
form of picture ID such as passport or National ID card... A birth
certificate does not have a picture, and it's very easy to get a fake
Driving License in the US... Anyhow, I'm done with the craziness now, I'm in
Canada and I'm grateful... Good luck to you!

You will need to apply via Washington. The US consulate or the state
department webiste can advise how. It takes a few weeks.

you can get it sooner with an extra fee and I cant see why US consulate in
Ottawa wont make you one in a matter of days.
