PPR Request outland applicant in Canada


I have received a passport request and I am an outland applicant (New Delhi office). I currently live and study in Canada. Should I submit my passport to CPC- Ottawa? The email from New Delhi office says that I can send my passport to Ottawa ( if I live in Canada) but when I called IRCC agent by phone, they said don’t share passport yet as process has changed?

Could someone please advise whether I should or should not send passports to Ottawa?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
