Hello I have a few questions

I’m looking to put some money into my tfsa and rrsp about 4000/5000 in each.

I set up accounts in questrade for each
I’m just looking for peoples opinions in what etfs I should go into. I’m 34. Debt free and have about 2000 disposable income a month to invest in. Please help me with ideas. I just want the money to grow 25-30 years

ETFs are good for passive management of money. The two above posters have great suggestions. You can get all in one ETFs like VGRO or you can get ETFs based on different markets:

XEF or VEA for developed markets
VOO or SPY for US S&P 500
XIC for Canadian market
XBB for Canadian bonds

Always check the MER which is the fee that you pay for investing in an ETF.

Stick with plain vanilla index investing, keep mer's low. The key you have already got to is that you recognize you need to invest to save over the long term.

Once you have enough money to have about 30 x$5000 in non registered ( ie tfsa and rrsp are full and you need to start holding investments) you can think about holding individual equities in a well diversified manner.

That day will come.
I was like you 25 years ago, and nose to the grind stone at a full time job, and invest every year, and keep an eye on fees and you too can get to a place of financial independence.
