Is it possible to renew US passport in Canada?

Anyone here renewed their US passport in Canada before? Is it possible to do so by mail? What is the typical processing time? Is it possible to renew at the consulate office in Vancouver?

Prior to pandemic, it took about 1-2 weeks for in-person renewal application. Renewal by mail is possible if you meet the criteria and processing time is about 4-6 weeks. Not sure of any delays in the current situation.

Earliest appointment slots available for in-person application at Vancouver Consulate seem to be in April...

Which method have you done before? If I do it in-person, is the new passport issued at the consulate office?

Renewal by mail seem really slow.

Have done in-person only. No, they do not issue at the consulate. They take the application at the consulate and will mail you the passport.

You can renew any passport in any country as long as there is a consulate in that country.
