I have some investments I want to partially transfer out of my TFSA and get certificated but I am not sure how to do this. I'm trying to avoid having to sell in TFSA, transfer money out, re-buy shares, pay commission and pay for certificate.

Instead, I would rather transfer them out "in kind" and have like one share certificated so I can do some optional cash purchases.

Any help would be appreciated. My brokerage is QTrade if that makes a difference.

It sounds like you would like to hold the share cert yourself.

Can't you buy 1 share cert from the broker, which would be deemed having withdrawn 1 share from your TFSA?

You may find more answers for that on www.dripinvesting.org

The small problem I have is how it will impact as a withdrawal. I bought it a few months back and now it has an unrealized capital gain on it. Would this capital gain be realized as soon as I share cert it out, within the TFSA? or would it be held until I decide to one day sell the share cert or something.
