Best Mattresses in Canada
To find the best mattress in Canada one needs to look north and south of the Canadian border. Here are my top picks of mattresses that are made in Canada or shipped there for the right price. US-CAD exchange rates used as of 8/12/19: 1 USD=1.32 CAD
Finding the Best Mattress That Ships to Canada
I’m not Canadian, but I speak French so I’ll occasionally shoot some of my videos in French. I also had the pleasure of visiting Goose Bay Canada while on Air France 66 (an Engine blew up).
The prices listed are for queen size mattresses. The expected price CAD column is to show relative value with the exchange rate. If the CAD price is lower than the expected price, then the mattress is at a relative discount to what a person in the US would pay.

Silk & Snow Hybrid
Silk & Snow
Logan & Cove
#1 Novosbed Mattress
Novosbed crushes the competition with an astounding + $252 CAD relative value in today’s exchange rate. What I really loved about testing the Novosbed was the adjustable firmness attachment that you can zip to the top of your cover. In the bed-in-a-box world it is difficult to know that you will have the right feel for your body without testing it. That’s why you get a trial period and that’s why Novosbed offers 2 chances to get that feeling right.
#2 Polysleep Mattress
Polysleep takes the number 2 spot with a relative value of almost $200 CAD. You can see in the photo above that they punched holes in the top layer to give the mattress better air flow.
#3 & #4 Silk & Snow
The 12″ Silk & Snow hybrid mattress comes at a relative value of $138, when compared to what one would get in the US. While the regular 10″ all foam S&S mattress has a relative value of +$106 CAD.
My preference of the two S&S mattresses is the regular one as it does better on adjustable beds (which I sleep on to control my husband’s snoring). The S&S hybrid will still work on an adjustable bed since it has pocketed coils, but the all foam variety will do a bit better.
#5 Leesa Mattress
Leesa is one of my top overall choices and comes to the Canadian market at a positive relative value of $23. In other words, you lucky Canadians are getting a better deal than we are in the States.
Leesa has sold over 350,000 mattresses and has expanded from the USA to sell in Canada, the UK, Germany, Ireland, and soon France. If they didn’t offer such a great sleep experience would they be able to tap into so many foreign markets?
Much like Leesa, Casper has done such a great job dominating the US market that they have been able to successfully expand into both Canada and Western Europe.
They offer a relative value of $18 to you lucky Canadians who can score a Casper for less than we Americans can.
You won’t have to worry about extra shipping fees since it’s made in Canada. More importantly look at the price in the table above. It is far less expensive than all of the other options. The only thing keeping it so far down on this list is that it isn’t available in the USA, so I can’t give it a relative value score. Perhaps the people at Douglas could provide me with the price that they would launch at in the US and I could adjust their position. Why would I go to all of that trouble? Because it is an AWESOME mattress! No joke, it is one of the few mattresses at this price-point that I would gladly sleep on.
I was pleasantly surprised by my sleep experience on the Douglas. It has a few features that I haven’t seen in the other mattresses that I have tested. I’m actually quite sad that I couldn’t keep mine, as it was a sample sent across the border. It was a sad day when I had to destroy it and then ship it off for recycling.
#8 Endy Mattress
Just like the Douglas, the Endy suffers from not selling mattresses in the states. Hopefully, they will offer one in the States so that I can calculate a relative value score for their mattress.
#9 Logan & Cove
This also comes from the folks at Good Morning, the makers of Novosbed and Douglas. Just like the Douglas, I was sent a mattress that wasn’t cleared by the US so I had to dispose of it when testing was complete. It’s a nice mattress, so I was sad that it didn’t get to find a nice home.
Purple is my #1 overall favorite. I have had mine for over 2 years now and sleep on it every chance that I get (when I’m not testing mattresses). It simply had to be included on this list of the best mattresses in Canada, as it is one of the best available in the States. The only problem that it has is that it is SO heavy (thanks to the hyper-elastic polymer section on top) that it likely costs the people at Purple a lot to ship it up north.
Purple is the only mattress that made this list that has a negative relative score. At -$80 CAD, you Canadians have to pay a premium to get this unique sleeping experience. I purchased my Purple, with my own money, and after 2 years of using and abusing it I would pay an extra $80 CAD for it.
