Borrowing from investment property to

My question is: Canadian-specific
QUESTION: I have 'extra' equity in my rental property that I pulled out.
I plan on investing that 'equity' for the next few years to
prepare for my child's tuition at school.  The interest from
my rental property should still be deductible because it's
been re-used for investment purposes.  Is that correct?
Or would it only be deductible up until the time I began to
cash-in/withdraw portions of it to pay for my child's
tuition?  If it's the latter, then would it be more
advantageous to invest in a rental property as opposed to
a dividend fund, etc ...
thanks in advance for your assistance.  B
david ingram replies:
It will only be deductible while used for the investment.
What you should invest in is a question of your own lifestyle, your own risk
tolerance and what your desires are.
A good case can be made for buying a condo in your child's name and renting
it out. Any losses at the start are yours for tax purposes and the capital
gain in the future is your child's at a (usually) lower tax rate.
