As I understand, CRA treats 401k like RRSPs. Makes sense from a tax perspective to max them out. You’ll pay tax when you access the funds

I am very conservative in investment. Have $650K in CDs/HYS, $50K in stock funds, and maxing out 401K. I have no debt except $520K of house mortgage @ 2.6% interest rate (house value is approx $1M). Does it make sense to pay out a portion of the mortgage or should I invest more in the market?

My husband and I (both 27) max out our Roth IRAs each year, have a complete emergency fund, and I’m able to start maxing my 401K this year (he contributes 10% to his 401K - it isn’t possible for him to max his based on his current pay). We contribute 18% extra towards principal on our mortgage each month. We now have about $20k of additional savings we want to figure out what to do with.

Is it time to leave? I started in late 2019, have pulled almost 20 all-nighters working, took over other peoples clients when they struggled on multiple occasions, never missed a billable hours goal, and prepared/gave training presentations for coworkers.
