The official Canadian Government site for passport renewal is here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/passport/apply/renew/ and we encourage you to use this as your primary source of information on the process for renewing a passport.
If you have questions that are not answered by the above websites, you should feel free to contact the Canadian Consulate in Los Angeles. Please note that they do not provide regular passport services, but should be able to help if you need more information, or if you have to travel in an emergency.
