Should I pay down my mortgage or invest in my RRSP?

Your best option depends on the following factors:

What happens if you put the money in your RRSP?

You get tax-free compounding of your investments and a tax refund that you can re-invest in the RRSP.

What happens if you pay down your mortgage?

You get reduced mortgage payments and you can invest the monthly savings (and RRSP deduction tax refunds) in your RRSP.
