You can take them out of as many RRSP accounts as you have. However, I
would just roll them all over into one and take it out of that one for
convenience sake.

And, in my opinion, you are better off paying down your mortgage an extra
bit than you are paying back the HBP at 1/15th a year for fifteen years.
