Canadian Resident with US IRA and large US stock portfolio

Post by caffemaven » Mon Dec 18, 2017 11:16 pm

Here's my question: I am a US citizen with permanent residency in Canada. I live in Quebec. I have a US IRA (still in the US) as well as a non-registered account. I am thinking of owning only fixed income assets in the IRA (ie Bond ETF's) and only growth stocks in the non-registered account. Is this a good idea, to lower my Canadian tax burden?
