a very specific question to all Canadians.

Current situation , i need to refund signing bonus which was paid along with 3 days of work at the company, taxes are withheld obviously
When you refund a signing bonus do you
1- refund ALL of it even taxes Withheld ?
2- refund only the amount that was deposited in your account
3- mix between 1 and 2 refund more than was deposited but less than the whole amount ( taxes should be refunded to me next year)

My contract says 2 and they want to do 3 Help

Unless the repayable amount of the bonus is explicitly pro-rated such that you owe them less the longer you stayed at the company, you normally would owe them the full (gross) amount. In that case, you would get the extra that you paid back with your tax return.

That being said, a contract is a contract. If you're confident in your interpretation of the contract and down to fight them in court, go for it. Unfortunately, that will almost certainly cost you more than just doing what they want though.
