With a wide selection of beds on the market in Canada, shoppers have many options. In addition to having widespread access to mattresses made in the United States, Canadian shoppers can also choose from a variety of Canadian-made models. 

Finding the best mattress in Canada for your sleep needs, lifestyle, and budget requires weighing multiple factors. We’ll discuss important criteria to consider and provide information on shipping methods, mattress types, and the differences between buying online versus in-store. We’ll also discuss our top picks for Canadian mattresses, which include different mattress types, materials, constructions, and price-points, so you can find a good option regardless of your sleep needs and budget.

“Online mattresses aren't just limited to U.S. shoppers. Canadians can choose from a wide range of high-quality beds exclusively sold within their country, as well as a handful of U.S.-made models that ship throughout Canada. These include affordable mattresses, high-end luxury beds, and plenty of options in between.” – Dr. Michael J. Breus, Ph.D.

Best Overall

Silk & Snow Hybrid


  • Type: Hybrid

  • Firmness: Medium Firm (6)

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King

  • Price Range: $600 – $900

  • Warranty: 15 Year, Limited


  • Competitively priced
  • Zoned support to promote good posture
  • Good for most sleep positions and body types

Ideal For

  • Hot sleepers
  • Couples
  • Those looking for a combination of support and pressure relief

Built in Canada with locally sourced materials, the Silk & Snow Hybrid Mattress combines foam and coils for great support and pressure relief. 

Designed to resist bacterial growth, the cover consists of silver-infused polyester and spandex. Underneath, a 1-inch layer of gel-infused polyfoam works with 2 inches of gel-infused memory foam to cradle you and redistribute your weight. Our testers also reported that the gel infusion did a good job of pulling heat away and keeping them cool. 

When considering a mattress, it’s important to look at how responsive it is – in other words, how much bounce it has and how easy it is to move on the surface. We found that the Silk & Snow Hybrid’s core, which is made with 1,200 double-tempered pocketed coils, creates a responsive surface that has more bounce than most all-foam models. The pocketed coils also limit the spread of vibrations, meaning you can change positions without disturbing your partner. 

Zoning increases the firmness near the center of the bed to encourage good sleep posture, and our testers reported that the firm foam perimeter reinforcement gives the edges a sturdy feel. This allows you to use more of the bed, and it can make getting into and out of bed easier as well.

While we found that back and side sleepers enjoyed this medium firm (6) mattress, stomach sleepers may be better served by a firmer model.

Silk & Snow offers free shipping to Canadian provinces and the contiguous U.S. On top of a 100-night sleep trial, Silk & Snow has a 15-year partially prorated limited warranty.

The Silk & Snow Hybrid is an all-around good choice for side and back sleepers looking for a responsive mattress. Its cooling technology may also appeal to hot sleepers.

What our tester thinks

Most Comfortable

Endy Mattress


  • Type: Foam

  • Firmness: Medium Firm (6)

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King

  • Price Range: $675 CAD – $995 CAD

  • Warranty: 15 Year, Limited


  • Breathable polyfoam construction
  • Machine-washable cover
  • Isolates motion well

Ideal For

  • Back and side sleepers
  • Individuals under 105 kilograms
  • Hot sleepers who like the feel of foam

While some all-foam models trap heat, the medium firm (6) Endy Mattress combines three layers of polyfoam for breathable contouring. 

The comfort layer consists of open-cell polyfoam that lets air circulate so that heat can dissipate. A responsive polyfoam transition layer and a high-density polyfoam core enhance the mattress’ support and durability. 

Our testers reported that, despite its breathable design, the Endy still hugs the body enough to relieve key pressure points around the shoulders and hips. Hot sleepers with joint pain may appreciate this combination. 

In our partnered motion isolation tests, the Endy’s motion-absorbing polyfoam also limited vibrations, making it a good choice for couples who want to be able to move without disrupting their partner’s sleep. Based on these test results, active sleepers should have little trouble moving across the bed. 

We also found that the Endy’s edge support is good compared to many all-foam models, making it easier to sit or sleep along the perimeter. However, the Endy isn’t as bouncy as many couples prefer for sex.

Side sleepers under 105 kilograms are likely to enjoy a good combination of cradling and support. Back sleepers under 105 kilograms and stomach sleepers under 60 kilograms may also find the Endy comfortable.

A 15-year limited warranty covers the Endy Mattress. Your purchase includes a 100-night sleep trial, and the mattress ships free to Canadian provinces.

If you’re a side or back sleeper looking for the plushness of a memory foam mattress without the heat buildup, the Endy Mattress could be a good fit. Its easily removable and machine-washable cover is also a nice bonus.

What our tester thinks

Best Pressure Relief

Hush Arctic Luxe Hybrid


  • Type: Hybrid

  • Firmness: Medium Firm (6)

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King

  • Price Range: $995 – $1,950

  • Warranty: 10 Year


  • Pillow-top cushioned with memory foam contours evenly to promote proper alignment and reduce pressure along the spine
  • Excellent breathability thanks to cooling cover and steady airflow through the coil system
  • Pocketed coils are zoned to reinforce heavier areas of the body

Ideal For

  • Hot sleepers
  • People with frequent shoulder, back, or hip pain
  • Those who carry extra weight in their midsections

If you wake up feeling sore or stiff in certain areas, a mattress that excels at pressure relief can help reduce your aches and pains. The Hush Arctic Luxe Hybrid features a pillow-top cushioned with adaptive foam layers over zoned pocketed coils. These components work together to distribute your weight, minimize sinkage, and provide adequate support for your entire body. A medium firm (6) feel also helps ensure the balance of contouring and reinforcement needed to prevent excessive pressure buildup.

Two memory foam layers make up the Arctic Luxe Hybrid’s comfort system. The topmost layer is somewhat plush, while the second layer is denser and designed to push back against your weight. Graphite and cooling gel infusions in these layers help offset the foam’s heat-retaining properties, allowing you to sleep cool. The cover is also woven with phase change material intended to dissipate heat on contact.

The support core contains pocketed coils with thicker springs resting beneath your torso and hips. Since many people carry a disproportionate amount of weight in these areas, the coils can keep your body on an even plane and prevent uncomfortable sinkage around the midsection. Thicker coils also line the perimeter to strengthen the edges when you get in and out of bed. Our team has found the medium firm hybrid design delivers sufficient support for most people who weigh 230 pounds or less.

The memory foam effectively limits responsiveness on the surface. As a result, the Arctic Luxe Hybrid isolates motion better than many competing hybrids, and may be suitable if you and your sleep partner tend to wake each other up with nighttime movements. Our testing team was also impressed with the sturdy edge support — a rare quality among pillow-top hybrids with thick foam layers.

The Arctic Luxe Hybrid is competitively priced and shipping is free throughout provincial Canada. Hush also provides complimentary delivery to customers in the contiguous U.S. All orders include a 100-night trial period. The standard warranty covers structural defects for one year. This is significantly shorter than average — most mattresses come with at least 10 years of warranty coverage — but you can purchase an accident protection plan covering stains and physical damage for up to 10 years.

What our tester thinks
opening quote icon “The Hush Arctic Luxe Hybrid’s thick, pillow-top comfort system conforms evenly to your body without hugging too tightly or trapping excessive heat. We recommend the mattress to anyone prone to feelings of stiffness or soreness when they wake up — particularly those weighing up to 230 pounds.” opening quote icon

Best Value

Juno Mattress


  • Type: Foam

  • Firmness: Medium Firm (6)

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King

  • Price Range: $329 – $549

  • Warranty: 15 Year, Full


  • Wallet-friendly price-point
  • Pressure-relieving, gel-infused polyfoam comfort layer
  • Isolates motion well

Ideal For

  • Back and side sleepers under 105 kilograms
  • Budget-conscious shoppers
  • Those who share a bed

The Juno Mattress is a responsive all-foam model with a medium firm (6) feel. With 2 inches of gel-infused polyfoam in the comfort layer and 6 inches of polyfoam in the core, this mattress offers enough pressure relief and support to accommodate most side and back sleepers under 105 kilograms.

Although all-foam beds often sleep hot, our tests showed that the Juno stays relatively cool while still providing a good amount of contouring. This may be due to its breathable polyester and viscose blend knit cover, which allows air to circulate. Additionally, the gel infusion in the comfort layer is intended to transfer heat away from the body.

Our testers reported that the bed is firm and responsive enough to allow easy movement across the entire surface, including the well-supported edges. The motion-absorbing foam construction also limits the spread of vibrations, making it a good option for couples. 

Available at a budget-friendly price, the Juno ships free to most locations in Canada. It comes with a 120-night sleep trial and a 15-year limited warranty.

We recommend the Juno as an affordable option for back and side sleepers who want a responsive foam mattress with good edge support. It’s also a good choice for couples or anyone who shares a bed and is sensitive to movement.

What our tester thinks
opening quote icon “The Juno's foam layers cushion the body nicely, but its thin profile and relatively firm feel ensure decent support. We recommend this mattress to anyone who prefers sleeping close to the floor, as well as people with mobility issues who have a hard time getting in and out of bed.” opening quote icon

Best for Side Sleepers

Polysleep Zephyr Mattress


  • Type: Foam

  • Firmness: Medium Firm (6)

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King

  • Price Range: $1750 – $2925

  • Warranty: 10 Year, Limited


  • Designed for breathability and comfort
  • Zoned support
  • Antimicrobial and infrared-radiating technology

Ideal For

  • Back and side sleepers under 105 kilograms
  • Couples
  • Hot sleepers who prefer the feel of foam

The medium firm (6) Polysleep Zephyr Mattress combines several distinct layers to balance contouring, breathability, and support. Altogether, the layers create a versatile surface that’s comfortable for sleepers of many body types and position preferences. 

The Zephyr’s soft cover consists of polyester, cotton, and spandex. It uses infrared technology designed to redirect the body’s infrared rays back at the sleeper, which is intended to aid recovery and promote quality sleep.

Our testers reported that the Zephyr’s gel-infused memory foam comfort layer comfortably hugged the body. In some mattresses, this hugging sensation can lead to heat buildup. However, our temperature regulation tests showed that the Zephyr still dissipates heat well even as it provides contouring and pressure relief. A secondary polyfoam comfort layer enhances the pressure relief and lets air circulate. 

The Zephyr uses antimicrobial technology in its comfort layer foam, which is designed to inhibit bacterial growth. Below this, the zoned polyfoam transition layer provides targeted support in the center of the bed to help prevent the hips and midsection from pulling the spine out of alignment. 

A firm, high-density polyfoam support frame wraps around the edge of the high-density polyfoam core to enable you to use the mattress’ entire surface. This edge support also means you’ll have a little extra help getting in and out of bed.

Our testers found that the Zephyr’s foam absorbs motion without hindering movement, making this mattress a great choice for couples. Partners should be able to get into and out of bed and change positions without disturbing each other. The surface should also be responsive enough for sex. 

Based on our tests, the Zephyr would best suit side sleepers and back sleepers under 105 kilograms and stomach sleepers under 60 kilograms.

This mattress includes free shipping to addresses in the Canadian provinces and the contiguous U.S. The Zephyr also comes with a 100-night sleep trial and a 10-year limited warranty.

The Zephyr is a great choice for couples who want a breathable foam mattress that doesn’t sleep too hot. Back and side sleepers are likely to enjoy it the most, but stomach sleepers under 60 kilograms may also find it to be a good fit.

What our tester thinks
opening quote icon “The Polysleep Zephyr's sophisticated design elevates it over other memory foam mattresses we've tested, resulting in great overall comfort. The aerated foam prevents bothersome heat buildup, a zoned transitional layer reduces sinkage around the chest and hips, and the medium firm feel should appeal to a lot of people across different sleep positions and body types.” opening quote icon

Best Cooling

Haven AirFlow Plus


  • Type: Foam

  • Firmness: Firm (7)

  • Sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Split King

  • Price Range: $512 – $1,120

  • Warranty: 4 Year, Limited


  • Firmer and more supportive than the average all-foam bed
  • Cover composed of breathable, moisture-wicking bamboo-derived fabric
  • Customers can receive free sleep accessories in lieu of a trial period

Ideal For

  • People who dislike the deep hug of softer all-foam mattresses
  • Hot sleepers
  • Value seekers

All-foam mattresses get a bad rap for sleeping excessively hot, but some models feature components designed to resist heat buildup and maintain a cool, comfortable temperature. The Haven AirFlow plus is a prime example. This firm (7), low-profile mattress features a top layer infused with cooling gel intended to dissipate heat on contact, as well as a breathable, bamboo-derived cover with moisture-wicking properties.

Above-average firmness is another reason why the AirFlow Plus sleeps cooler than the average all-foam mattress. You shouldn’t sink too deeply into this mattress — especially if you weigh 230 pounds or less. This allows air to circulate more consistently across the surface, keeping you cool in the process.

A high-density foam base layer stabilizes the AirFlow Plus, reinforcing the firm feel while gently cushioning your body. Our hands-on tests indicate the mattress is best suited to side sleepers over 230 pounds, and back and stomach sleepers weighing at least 120 pounds. The 8-inch profile is also a good fit for many RV bed frames.

Our team also found that the mattress provides decent motion isolation, which can be beneficial for couples. Both foam layers work together to absorb movement and reduce motion transfer. This means you shouldn’t experience sleep disruptions if your partner changes positions or gets up in the middle of the night, and vice versa.

In addition to its affordable pricing, the AirFlow Plus qualifies for free ground shipping throughout provincial Canada. The mattress’ sleep trial runs for 100 nights. Conversely, you can opt out of the trial and instead receive complimentary sleep accessories from Haven. Your options for the latter include a sleep mask, memory foam pillow, and mattress protector. If you keep the mattress beyond the return period, it’ll be backed by a 4-year warranty.

What our tester thinks
opening quote icon “The Haven AirFlow plus is firmer and sturdier than most of the all-foam models we’ve tested. These qualities make the mattress a good option for people who normally find foam beds too soft and prone to uncomfortable sinkage.” opening quote icon

Why You Should Trust Us

We have years of experience in the sleep product industry, rating and reviewing products that we’ve carefully researched and tested ourselves. 

We look at a wide variety of mattresses for each category and test them with a range of sleepers. The members of our testing team have different body types and position preferences, which help us see how these personal factors impact the sleep experience. 

Each tester lies on the mattress and performs several tests to assess its performance. We also use tools like pressure mapping pads and VOC meters to incorporate objective data. We’ve carefully refined our testing process so that our reviews provide the most nuanced and accurate information possible.

How Much Does a Mattress Cost in Canada?

The price of a new Canadian mattress ranges from as little as $200 CAD to over $3,000 CAD. However, most fall between $800 CAD and $2,000 CAD. The cost of a new mattress varies significantly depending on factors like size, materials, type of mattress, and shipping method.

While high-quality mattresses are traditionally more expensive than lower-quality alternatives, you should be able to find a comfortable mattress with virtually any budget if you focus on the criteria that matter most to you. 

Mattress Type

The price of a new mattress depends largely on its type. Raw materials needed to produce mattresses can be expensive, and complex construction methods can further increase production costs. For example, hybrid beds generally cost more than innerspring or all-foam models due to their combination of components. Similarly, organic latex mattresses usually have higher price-points because of the increased cost of their materials.


A bigger bed requires more raw materials, which increases the overall cost. However, the extra space may be well worth it for couples sharing a sleep surface. 


Some mattress companies charge more for their products than others. This is often at least partially due to the reputation of the company. A long history of satisfied customers adds value. Many brands also offer generous sleep trials and warranties on their mattresses. While these typically come at no extra cost to buyers, they can increase the overall price-point. 

Buying Online vs. In-Store

Saving money is a common benefit of buying a mattress online. Maintaining warehouses and brick-and-mortar stores increases the overhead of in-person shopping. In contrast, many direct-to-consumer manufacturers only produce mattresses after the shopper has placed an order, limiting the need for costly storage facilities.

Shoppers can browse online mattresses from the comfort of their homes, taking as much time as they need to sort through the options. Additionally, they can watch for sales and discounts that may not be available to in-store buyers. As a bonus, some online retailers also offer lengthier trial periods.


Shipping can be quite costly, especially for a product as large as a mattress. With the mattress-in-a-box delivery model, each mattress is compressed, rolled, and boxed to make it easier and less expensive to ship. 

When shopping, consider how the mattress ships. The cost of shipping often depends on the buyer’s location and the shipping method. 

Mattress Shipping in Canada

Shipping can affect the cost and convenience of your new mattress. Policies and prices may vary by destination, and the delivery method impacts the ease of setup. 

Within Canada

While policies vary between companies, shoppers in the Canadian provinces typically enjoy free standard shipping on online mattress purchases from Canadian brands. However, fees may apply to deliveries to the territories and to remote locations. 

Outside of Canada

While some mattress companies in Canada ship exclusively to Canadian addresses, many also ship to the United States and other countries. Shipping fees often apply for international orders.

Similarly, some U.S.-based mattress companies ship to Canada. Many charge additional fees, but some include free shipping to the provinces.

Standard Shipping vs. White Glove Delivery

Mattresses purchased online often include free standard shipping. The mattress will arrive compressed, rolled, and packaged in a box. You’ll need to bring the mattress into your room of choice before unpacking and assembling it. 

In some cases, you may also be able to select White Glove delivery. White Glove delivery typically includes in-home delivery, setup, and packaging removal. Old mattress removal is also frequently available with the service, though extra charges may apply.

Which Mattress Types Can I Find in Canada?

In Canada and around the world, mattresses can be classified by type based on their construction. Most Canadian mattresses fall into one of several main categories.

Foam Mattresses

What They Are
Who They’re Good For

Foam mattresses include foam in both their comfort and transition layers. The comfort layer may incorporate polyfoam, memory foam, or latex, while the core consists of polyfoam.
Because foam conforms to the body and absorbs vibrations, all-foam models often excel in pressure relief and motion isolation.

  • Side sleepers
  • Those who wake up easily when their partner moves
  • Individuals looking for significant pressure relief

Hybrid Mattresses

What They Are
Who They’re Good For

Hybrid mattresses combine coil support cores with substantial comfort systems made of foam, latex, or other materials.
The comfort system generally provides contouring and motion isolation, while the coils add bounce, support, and breathability.
Innerspring beds also use coil cores but have much thinner comfort systems. Some may lack a comfort layer altogether.

  • Combination sleepers 
  • Couples
  • Hot sleepers

Latex Mattresses

What They Are
Who They’re Good For

Latex mattresses use latex comfort and support layers. Natural latex is common in the mattress industry. This material is produced from the sap of rubber trees. However, synthetic and blended options are also available.
Models made of latex tend to be responsive, breathable, and durable. Latex spreads compression over a wider area than memory foam does, which can give you a slight floating sensation when you lie down on it.

  • Eco-conscious shoppers
  • Those who tend to sleep hot
  • Shoppers concerned with durability

Airbed Mattresses

What They Are
Who They’re Good For

Airbeds use adjustable air chambers for support. Adding air increases the firmness, while emptying it makes the surface softer. You can generally adjust the settings with a remote or an app. The comfort system may include foam or latex for pressure relief.
Most queen and king size airbeds include a separate air chamber on either side of the bed so that partners can customize their sleep experience.

  • People with changing firmness preferences
  • Couples 
  • Those with frequent aches and pains
