I want to port my Koodo mobile number out to a different carrier and keeping the current Koodo plan. I don't my getting a different Koodo number with my current plan. 

I have a great plan with Koodo. I want to let my daughter to use. I can port her number to this account.

However, I want to keep my current Koodo number.

Any suggestions??

Unfortunately, not possible. Once you port a number, the current account is closed. You can port your daughter's number to your account, but you lose your number. You can port your number out, but you lose the account.

How good is your plan though?

If you want to port your number out, as long as your remaining tab balance isn't outrageously high, best to just do it. Plans come and go (as well as promotions), you'll likely find something similar when you bring the other number into Koodo.

By the way, if you port the other number in prior to porting yours out, you can maintain continuous billing under the same account number. One less hassle to deal with.

I lost a number because I didn't want to buy-out a line with roughly ~$175 remaining on subsidy. The old phone number is gone (in vain) at no benefit to me (aside getting a new number that qualifies me for better plans). Now, I buy-out contracts whenever I'm at $200 or less remaining on subsidy. Besides, when you port the other number in from the other carrier, you'll qualify for new activation promos, which are very lucrative...
