Don't take my passport yet, please!

Canadian Passport Renewal: If I go down to the Passport Canada office and renew my passport in person, will they take away my old (still valid) passport, leaving me passport-less until the new one arrives?

I'm eligible for and will be using the 'Simplified Renewal Application' process. My passport expires in November, and I have plans to travel to Mexico in December, so obviously I need to renew sooner rather than later.
The hiccup is that sometime soon (in the next two weeks I'm guessing) work will require me to fly into the US - which obviously I need a passport for. Hence, it would be very bad for me to be without one right now. I don't have provable travel plans yet though, so I don't think I'm eligible for the Urgent or Express pick-up.
Does anyone have any experience with renewing their Canadian Passport in person? Do they take away your current passport if it hasn't yet expired?
