This isnt possible without losing your number or plan. If you port out your number, the line and plan are gone. If you port in the number you want to have this plan then your number is gone.

And if you port in your new number into your current plan, your old number will eventually go back into the pool of numbers to hand out to new customers - there is no chance really to get it back ever again.

Telus/Koodo will still have your number before they release it into their pool of numbers to be picked from. Not sure if you would be able to retrieve it without contacting them. If the number is going to another provider they might not be very helpful working with you to get it back even if its possible.

I think it's possible to retrieve it, but you would need to act pretty fast. 
If 90 days is "pretty fast" for you, cool.
