This amount equal to biometric fee of two person. You paid biometric fee when applied but your biometric was not required because one you did in past for super visa was accepted. This is my assumption.

BREAKING NEWS.
New air-travel rules coming to Canada:
-second COVID-19 test needed on arrival
-three-day mandatory hotel quarantine = ~$2,000
-if negative then 14-day quarantine completed at home
-if positive then 14-day quarantine completed in hotel
-no start date yet.
I am wondering if this rule will apply to the passengers with PR visas. They need to land, so their travel should not be categorized under "non-essential travel".

Breaking: COVID concentration camps coming soon to every province!
If it helps stop covid cases coming into Canada, why not? If i was to go home to NZ, I'd have to stay in mandatory quarantine (hotel) for 14 days and pay $3k. But they're living life like normal down there, parties, concerts, vacations. No masks needed.

Why would IRCC refund me $170 for biometric?
Biometrics exemption for permanent residence applicants who have given biometrics within the last 10 years. You don't have to pay the biometric fee when you submit your application, even if the system tells you to pay it. If you paid the fee, we'll automatically refund it once we finalize your application.

Thank you for sharing your timeline. Congratulations! I have added your info to the tracker- can you provide me with this info? Parents country of citizenship? Province you are in? And when you received your AOR (Acknowledgement of receipt of application)?

It's going to apply to all. This is as much of a measure to control travel into Canada as it is to reduce the spread of COVID so it doesn't matter if your travel was essential or non-essential

Statistics confirms that travel cases account for less than 2 %, something needs to be done inside the country

Are you in tracker? When did you submit your application? How did you pay your bio fees? Via credit card?
