Best Mattress Canada
So, you’re a Canadian shopper looking to buy a new mattress online. You’ve figured out your preferences, done some “mattress reviews Canada” research on Sleepopolis *wink wink* and have finally settled on what you hope will be the bed of your dreams! Easy as can be, right? Well… not always.
In your search, you probably learned that a lot of bed-in-a-box brands are located in the United States and unfortunately don’t ship their mattresses outside the country, which can be particularly frustrating for those of you just across the border in search of the perfect mattress in a box Canada.
But never fear! In the past few years, a handful of excellent Canadian mattress companies have heard your call and set up shop above the 49th parallel to bring some much-needed comfort to sleepers all the way from Nova Scotia to British Columbia.
To help you get started on your search, I’ve assembled some of my favorite Canadian brands below and even thrown in a few American ones that provide free shipping for their neighbors to the North.
Best Mattress in Canada of 2021 - Reviews & Buying Guide
MATTRESS BUYING GUIDE CANADA
To make it onto my Best Mattress Canada list, brands had to meet a few different criteria. First and foremost, high marks were doled out to Canadian mattress companies that design, manufacture and assemble their products all in Canada. Secondly, I gave preference to any brands that have headquarters in the country as I feel an official presence on the ground says a lot about a company’s investment in a place.
After coming up with a list of those brands with meaningful connections to Canada, I narrowed it down even further to focus on companies that make the best quality mattresses. While a subjective term like “best quality” is going to mean different things to different people, for me it’s all about a thoughtful design process that uses superior materials in an innovative way to bring the most comfort to the consumer at the best price. I think too that this process must support the phenomenal work being done across Canada to fight climate change by keeping things as local and sustainable as possible.
And of course I also considered comfort, ratings, cost in CAD, warranties, trial periods, other mattress reviews Canada, delivery rates and all those other fun things in my decision-making process.
Best Mattress for Hip Pain
You might be surprised to see Casper on this list, but the popular mattress company has officially established a physical presence in Canada with a new Toronto HQ and a soon-to-be provincewide collection of retail locations.
What this means is that Canadians can now enjoy free shipping on the brand’s ever-growing line of beds, which includes the Wave Hybrid (a luxury all-foam option), Essential (no-fuss affordable model) and flagship Casper (featuring Zoned Support).
While we like the Casper mattresses for a lot of reasons, we’re especially into how cool they sleep thanks to their breathable, open-cell foam designs.
Best Mattress for Back Pain
If you’re sleeping on a mattress that doesn’t have the right feel for your personal sleep style or preference then it can be putting your body all out of alignment. That misalignment can lead to aches and pains in your back if it goes on for too long. The Leesa Original is an all-foam mattress with a medium firm feel, providing a balanced feel of support and comfort in multiple sleep positions.
By providing an even blended foam feel, the Leesa is a great choice for combination sleepers that roll around throughout the night. So if you’re looking for a mattress that will provide proper spinal alignment to help you avoid back pain, check out the Leesa Original.
Best Latex Mattress
If you’re a Canadian shopper interested in a latex mattress the GhostBed might be just what you’re looking for. Latex is a naturally cooling, naturally antimicrobial, and naturally bouncy material. The GhostBed original mattress takes this to the next level by combining a layer of aerated latex with a layer of gel-infused memory foam. This means the GhostBed sleeps extremely cool, but offers a bit of pressure relieving sinkage, which is uncommon for latex beds.
If you’re a back or combination sleeper you should be happy on the GhostBed. You’ll get the balance of pressure relief and support you need to keep your spine aligned, which is important for avoiding back pain. And the GhostBed’s naturally bouncy latex layer will make it easy for you to change positions at night.
U.S. BRANDS THAT’LL SHIP… FOR A PRICE
Helix occupies a unique space in the bed-in-a-box sphere as it provides some of the most customizable comfort out there. Upon first visiting the site, customers fill out a short sleep questionnaire, which automatically generates a mattress recommendation based on their individual responses.
If you’re a first time mattress buyer and aren’t exactly sure what kind of feel you’re after, Helix could make a fantastic pick for you. Just know that shipping this mattress to Canada will cost you C$150 as well as a Customs Tax, all of which will be applied at checkout. Want to figure out if the Helix is worth this chunk of change? Take a peek at my full review of the mattress.
Featuring three mattresses (the all-foam Bowery, hybrid Signature and cooling Aurora), Brooklyn Bedding has been at the forefront of the bed-in-a-box movement for the better part of a decade.
While the company prides itself on designing and manufacturing all its products in its home factory in Arizona, it does ship beds to its fans up North for a fee. Shipping to Canada is done via UPS and starts at $270 a mattress, with smaller accessory items coming with custom quotes depending on the order. If that expense doesn’t phase you in the slightest, check out my full reviews of the Bowery, Signature and Aurora.
