I'm about 30, my portfolio allocation is as follows:

15% bonds
30% US Equities
20% CAD Equities
35% Intl Equities

Should I max out my RRSP? I already have bonds and some foreign equities in TFSA and RRSP, but should the remaining equities be in RRSP? or in a taxable account?

Why would you want to pay taxes on your investments now? Put them in an RRSP and defer the tax payments and have them grow. Plus you get a tax break.

I think it depends on your income.

My view is that asset allocation has nothing to do with tax strategies. You select an allocation that suits your needs, and only after that, you should try to arrange your investments to minimize taxes.
