When it comes time to search for a new mattress, the obvious question in your mind is, “what is the best mattress you can choose?” While the answer may vary depending on whether you’re a side, back, stomach, or combo sleeper, the overarching trends are that the mattress should be durable, be of high-quality, and should offer reasonable value. Our goal is to provide a great starting point for the best top rated mattresses in Canada, and we’ll try to make the search and choice a little bit easier.

Douglas Mattress – Best Overall
The Douglas mattress is a high-quality mattress that offers a balance of support and cushy comfort, delivering the perfect combination for relaxing sleep time and time again. Four layers make up the Douglas mattress; a CoolSense cover that helps regulate body temperature, a 2” cooling foam gel that helps the mattress disperse heat away from your body, a 2” premium Elastex foam as a transition layer, and 6” of motion isolation foam. These layers add up to 10” of the mattress, which is at the lower end of the height scale yet very effective.
Thanks to the two cooling technologies used in the mattress, even hot sleepers can sleep comfortably during the summer months. The cover is breathable, and the interior layers are natural heat-regulators. The transition layer is an essential aspect since it provides contouring to the body and manages to support the spine and relieve pressure on joints such as the hips, knees, and shoulders. The main bulk of the mattress, found in the 6” support foam, provides medium-firm support to the top layers that combine to form an effectively supportive but responsive mattress.
When looking at the performance of the Douglas mattress, we see high scores across the board. This bed is very effective at motion isolation since the mattress base is designed for that specific purpose. Plus, edge support is reliable and firm, allowing you to more easily sleep on the edge or put on your socks in the morning without sliding off the bed entirely ungracefully. You’ll be able to move around quite easily in this mattress since the bounce keeps you from sinking in too far.
- 15-year warranty and 120-night sleep trial
- 2” cooling gel foam top layer
- Excellent motion isolation
- Made in Canada
- Only one firmness level
Endy Mattress – Best Eco Conscious
The Endy mattress is a more affordable mattress that is a bit lower-quality than some others on our list, but still performs admirably for a lower-priced bed. This mattress is 10” tall and has three layers that provide the comfort and support you deserve; but first, the cover. The mattress provides a great initial sensory experience via a poly knit cover that is soft and breathable, not to mention removable for washing. The comfort layer of the mattress is made with a proprietary layer of Endy foam that is quite effective at pressure relief. This foam also promotes a cool sleep by utilizing an open-call design for optimal cooling and heat dissipation.
A thin transition layer divides the comfort and support layers and is made of polyfoam. This layer is integral to a great sinking feeling when lying down since it is an in-between firmness that joins the two layers together nicely. The bulk of the mattress height comes from the base layer made of high-density foams for durability and support. Even though the Endy mattress is on the thin side height-wise, the bed’s medium-firmness holds up well to heavier individuals and partners sleeping together since it is more durable than softer, cushier mattresses. Plus, it is lighter-weight than other mattresses thanks to its reduced height, making it much easier to move when redecorating or relocating.
One of the main features that make this mattress so highly-rated is the temperature-neutral layers that prevent sweating and overheating during sleep by promoting airflow, which also helps keep the mattress cleaner and healthier over time. Though not as durable as higher-end mattresses with only a 10-year guarantee, it still offers excellent value for your money. The 100-night sleep trial offered by Endy is one of the lowest sleep trials we’ve seen, though you should still have more than enough time to determine if the Endy mattress is right for you.
- Made in Canada
- High-density foam support layer
- Machine washable mattress cover included
- Temperature neutral
- Short 100-night sleep trial
- Shorter 10-year warranty
Novosbed Mattress – Best Luxury
The Novosbed mattress is a foam mattress that offers luxurious comfort and premium softness while providing optimal support of the spine and joints. A high-density foam coupled with furniture-grade upholstery siding and a robust two-way elastic cover combine to achieve incredible durable for lasting quality even under heavy use. There are three firmness options available as well as a 120-night sleep trial so you can ensure you choose the right firmness for you.
The cover of the mattress possesses moisture-wicking properties to keep sweat at bay overnight. The body of the mattress has three important layers; comfort, transition, and support. The first is a memory foam layer that assists with cooling the body during sleep while offering excellent contouring and cushion. The transition layer still uses foam but is a bit firmer to provide pressure relief and ease you into the support layer.
The mattress’s final layer is a firmer support foam that performs well in regards to balanced support and pressure relief on high-stress areas such as hips and shoulders. This bed offers excellent edge support as well as optimum motion isolation for couples or pet-friendly beds. Though there is a bit of bounce lacking due to the all-foam construction, you’ll still feel as though you’re lying on top of the mattress rather than inside it, so long as you’re opting for one of the firmer mattress options.
- Ultra-soft cover is machine washable
- Available in soft, medium, and firm with a perfect firmness guarantee
- 15-year warranty and 120-night sleep trial to ensure compatibility
- High-density foam for durability, support, and airflow
- Made in Canada
- Not compatible with adjustable bed frames/foundations
- Not much bounce
Casper Mattress – Best for Combination Sleepers
The Casper mattress uses a simple 3-layer design that achieves surprising comfort and support due to the advanced mattress technologies used. The first layer is a breathable Airscape foam that is perforated to promote improved airflow, resulting in essential air circulation for sleeping coolly at night. The second layer is zoned for support, and the third layer is a durable polyfoam base that affords most of the support of the mattress. Both the first and third layers are made with polyurethane foam which provides enough bounce but concentrates on gentle support and relaxing comfort.
The middle layer of the bed is where most of your cushioning and comfort comes from. This layer is a durable memory foam that contours to the body and cushions the shoulders with a zoned difference to keep the body supported without adding pressure to joints. This zoned support system leaves a firmer feel at the hips, lower back, and waist for optimal lumbar support and alignment in order to encourage better posture during sleep. One of the most admirable features of the Casper mattress is the use of recycled mattresses to reduce the manufacturing footprint of the bed, making it the ideal choice for environmentally-conscious shoppers.
The Casper mattress is ideally designed for those who want exceptional support when sleeping as it has zoned cushioning for any sleep position. However, no bed is perfect, and the Casper mattress does have a few flaws. The sleep trial that comes with this bed is only 100 days, which is roughly three weeks less than the most common sleep trial period. Plus, there’s only a 10-year warranty protecting your purchase, which is certainly on the lower end of the scale. The only performance-related drawback is the notably adequate motion isolation, so you will most likely notice drastic movements from partners or pets unless you’re a very heavy sleeper.
- Breathable foam for better temperature regulation and heat dispersion
- Uses recycled materials for smaller footprint
- Zoned foam for joint comfort
- Shorter 100-night sleep trial and 10-year warranty
- Relatively average motion isolation
Logan and Cove Mattress – Best Pocketed Coil
The Logan and Cove luxury pillowtop mattress is known for amazing comfort and softness thanks to the memory foam, silk fill, and high-density foams. The pillowtop layer cushions the body with a silk blend for softness and comfort. There are also a few additional layers for comfort before you reach the support of the bed: a ¾” high density cooling gel foam, ½” of high-density bio foam, a 1” cooling memory foam, and another 1” of high-density bio foam.
The bulk of this high-profile mattress comes from a 2” layer of high-density bio foam that transitions the body from the pillowtop softness to the firmer support of the base layer. The final layer is comprised of 8” zoned pocketed coils for support. Since the springs are individually wrapped, they provide balanced support and perform better than average when it comes to motion isolation of spring and hybrid mattresses. A support foam around the mattress’s perimeter ensures excellent edge support for sleeping or sitting on the edge of the bed.
The multiple layers of cooling technology featured in this pillowtop mattress ensure that you’ll never overheat even when sleeping with two-legged or four-legged friends. The contouring bio foam layers are responsible for keeping your spine aligned, and they do so in any sleeping position you find yourself in throughout the night. There is a bit of a lack of bounce for a spring mattress given the pillowtop cushioning and multiple foam layers, but if you’re after a pillowtop mattress, this won’t be considered a flaw. A 15-year warranty and 120-night sleep trial guarantee satisfaction with your choice of resting place.
- 120-night sleep trial with 15-year warranty
- 7 layers for advanced comfort and support
- Pressure relief and lumbar support
- Great motion isolation from individually wrapped pocketed coils and memory foam
- Made in Canada
- Only two firmness options
- Lacks bounce
Juno Mattress – Best Budget
The Juno mattress is virtually the most budget-friendly mattress in Canada. This mattress measures only 8” in height and has only two layers for comfort and support. The first layer is a 2” full-body cooling gel foam that is incredibly effective at reducing the temperature of you and the mattress while you sleep. The foam has a great amount of cushion to contour to the body but is firm enough that the support layer doesn’t shock the body.
The mattress’s support layer is 6” tall, which is a lower profile than many other supportive foams that reach 8 or 10 inches of height but still support the spine and maintains a proper sleeping posture in any position. However, there is a markable difference between this low-profile mattress’s support and the taller, coiled mattresses, so keep that in mind when considering the Juno mattress.
This bed has excellent bounce and excels in motion isolation since it is constructed entirely with foams. This mattress is compatible with nearly every base, including adjustable beds, platforms, foundations, slats, and bed frames. A long 15-year warranty is surprising, and we’re very pleased with the lasting quality and durability of this mattress for the price.
- Very budget-friendly
- Cooling gel foam top layer
- Very responsive bounce
- Performs very well at motion isolation
- 120-night sleep trial and 15-year warranty
- Made in Canada
- Thinner at 8” of height
- Less supportive due to all-foam construction and reduced profile
Polysleep Mattress – Best for Pressure Relief
The Polysleep mattress has a shorter profile of 10” but comprises several effective layers for support and comfort while you sleep. The top cover of the mattress is completely waterproof and liquid repellant so you can eat and drink in bed with total peace of mind. The sides of the cover are a mesh, making it extra breathable and allowing for a cooling effect. The comfort layer below the cover is a hybrid foam that both cools the body and alleviates stress on high-pressure areas such as the shoulders hips, and knees.
A transition layer consisting of a thin foam that is softer than the support but firmer than the comfort layer, assisting with contouring and pressure relief. The final layer is a thick, high-density foam that reinforces the top two layers and is firm enough to make shifting positions at night easy without being too firm. This mattress does not contain any latex, making it an excellent choice for those with allergies or sensitivities. Plus, antimicrobial properties keep allergens and dust far away.
The Polysleep mattress has a proprietary built-in edge support frame that ensures zero slack when lying or sitting on the mattress’s edge. This support frame also extends the mattress’s durability since it provides perimeter support and prevents and sagging over time. You’ll also appreciate highly-effective motion isolation thanks to the all-foam construction. The only (very minor) flaw is a limited 10-year warranty and a short 100-night sleep trial.
- Certified antimicrobial foam
- Unique foam support frame for improved edge support
- Open cell hybrid foam for support and pressure relief
- Great motion isolation for those with restless partners – or four-legged family members
- Made in Canada
- 100-night sleep trial and 10-year warranty are shorter than average
Recore Mattress – Best for Recovery
The Recore mattress is a medium-soft mattress that uses 4 layers to provide comfort, support, and cooling during sleep. The top cover is an antimicrobial SilverCharged cover that is cool to the touch and highly breathable. The top layer of the mattress itself is a 1.5” layer of graphite-infused latex foam that is incredibly responsive to pressure and immediately contours to your body, providing satisfying relief of high-pressure areas when lying down in any position.
Next up is a 2” layer of cooling gel foam that achieves advanced temperature regulation to maintain a lower sleeping temperature for your 8 hours. Plus, it offers excellent weight distribution for a more restful, comfortable sleep. The support layer is 7” of high-density foam that supports optimal lumbar alignment and is fairly effective with pressure relief and motion isolation. The bed is incredibly cool to sleep on, thanks to the cooling technologies and natural cooling properties of latex, so it’s a great pick for hot sleepers.
Considering the latex materials and durable foams present in the Recore mattress, we would’ve liked to see a 20+ year warranty on par with other high-quality latex mattresses, though 15 years is still plenty. This is a high-performance mattress designed to provide pressure relief, achieve a proper sleeping posture, limit sinkage, and promote cool temperatures, making it an excellent choice for virtually any type of sleeper.
- Excellent motion isolation
- Made in Canada
- Graphite infused latex and gel layer for cooling
- High-density memory foam for pressure relief and motion isolation
- 15-year warranty period is a bit shorter than most other latex mattresses
Casper Wave Mattress – Best Support
The Casper Wave mattress is a hybrid mattress best suited to those who are looking for additional support or ergonomic zones. The mattress has 5 layers that provide cooling, support, and comfort where needed. The first layer of the mattress is a thin AirScape foam layer with cooling gel that responds quickly to pressure to conform to your body and relieve pressure on your joints and spine. The foam is perforated for improved airflow for a continually cool experience. A second later of AirScape foam assists with temperature regulation and airflow through the mattress.
The third layer is AirScape foam as well, but the memory foam has three ergonomic zones that add support in the necessary areas while allowing for greater sinkage where optimal. The foam is softer under the shoulders since this is where the majority of your stress rests, and it’s firmer under the hips, waist, and lower back to keep the spine properly aligned in any sleeping position. The fourth layer consists of innovative gel pods situated under the waist and lower back. These gel pods are responsible for supporting your spine fully and relieving aches and pains.
The final layer consists of springs that give the bed a bulk of its height, encourage proper airflow through the mattress, and provide most of your support. Edge support is ideal with this mattress, thanks to a firmer border around the perimeter of the bed, ensuring you won’t struggle to get out of bed and won’t fall if lying or sitting on the edge. The 10-year warranty is roughly average for a hybrid mattress, though the sleep trial is shorter than competitors. While this mattress is quite expensive, even in the smaller sizes, it offers top-tier support.
- Uses recycled materials
- Excellent airflow and cooling technologies
- Outstanding pressure relief from ergonomic zones and gel pods
- Reliable and effective support
- 10-year warranty and shorter sleep trial period
Brunswick Spring Mattress – Best Spring Feel
The Brunswick spring mattress has a medium firmness rating and consists of 5 layers including a quilted cover. The cover is breathable and incredibly durable, capable of protecting your mattress for many years to come. A euro-top fill layer underneath the cover provides an initial layer of comfort and padding that feels pillowy and soft. Below is a cooling gel memory foam layer for temperature regulation, contouring, and pressure relief.
A transition layer is present in the form of a high-density Trizone eco-foam that is great for sleepers in any position looking for joint and lumbar support and alignment. The support layer of the Brunswick spring mattress is, of course, springs. The coils are zoned, pocketed, reinforced, and individually wrapped to achieve maximum motion isolation possible with a spring mattress. Though it won’t be as effective as an all-foam mattress, you’ll have no trouble sleeping soundly through a partner that’s tossing, turning, or getting up during the night.
This mattress’s edge support is quite effective thanks to a full-perimeter encasement that keeps the edge of the mattress from sagging or sinking. Since the mattress’s comfort layers are thin compared to the bed’s total profile, you may notice a firmer feel since there’s less padding between you and the springs. The 15-year warranty on this Brunswick bed is ideal for a spring mattress since they aren’t expected to last as long as foam-based mattresses. One notable drawback of this bed is that lighter sleepers may not experience as much pressure relief since they don’t force the bed to contour as much as a heavier user.
- 120-night sleep trial and 15-year warranty
- Made in Canada
- Cooling gel memory foam
- Reinforced perimeter support
- Lightweight sleepers may not experience as much pressure relief
- Thinner comfort layer
The Ghostbed Mattress – Best Cooling
The Ghostbed mattress is made up of four layers if you count the cover – which we definitely do. The cover is plush and consists of a polyester and viscose blend for supreme softness and a great stretch that bends with the mattress easily for a smooth sink into the bed. Below, you’ll find a 1.5” layer of aerated latex which we really enjoy in this mattress since it promotes a healthy airflow during sleep and helps regulate a cooler temperature by giving your body heat somewhere else to go. The latex layer also delivers an appealing bounce to the mattress, making it easy to move around and change positions during sleep.
The last two layers are where the majority of the support is found. A 2” gel memory foam layer provides effective joint relief with body contouring and lumbar support. It also promotes cooling since it is made with larger cells than the average memory foam layer. Finally, the mattress’s support comes from a 7.5” thick high-density foam layer that has the perfect amount of give for a comfortable supporting structure, but that is firm enough to provide lumbar support, alignment, and pressure relief at all the right places.
Since this mattress doesn’t contain coils for support, you can trust the 20-year warranty to be an accurate representation of the Ghostbed mattress’s longevity. The bed’s taller profile will please those who enjoy sleeping higher up, while the durability and cooling properties found in the foam and latex layers will please hot sleepers and those with restless partners. A 101-night sleep trial ensures that you can test out the medium-firmness for yourself and determine if it is the right fit for your sleep style.
- Effective cooling technologies
- Designed for optimal lumbar support
- Aerated for improved air flow and heat disbursement
- Mattress is thick to lift you higher off the ground
- Made in Canada
- Shorter sleep trial period than most other mattresses (101 nights)
Ghostbed Luxe Mattress – Best Plush
The Ghostbed Luxe mattress has a high profile of 13” with a total of 7 layers. This medium-plush mattress focuses on cooling and pressure relief technologies to provide optimal comfort during sleep. The top cover of the mattress is made with a premium Ghost Ice fabric that is always cool to the touch. A 1” cooling fiber is woven directly into the cover for increased softness and excellent airflow to wick moisture and maintain a cool sleeping temperature.
The comfort layer begins with a 1” layer of gel memory foam inside the cover that provides an instant contour when you apply pressure to the mattress. Beneath this thick cover, a second Ghost Ice layer provides additional cooling via thermo-sensitivity technology that consistently monitors temperature and adjusts according to additional heat. A Ghost memory foam layer partnered with a premium Ghost Bounce layer responds exceptionally well to any pressure and provide effective body contouring to support you in all the right places. These layers also provide pressure relief on the joints at high-stress locations.
The main bulk of the mattress is found in the 7.5” high-density support foam layer. The foam is quite durable and provides effective support to sleepers of all sizes. This mattress is guaranteed a 25-year warranty, making it one of the most durable on our list. Plus, it provides effective motion isolation for those with partners and is an excellent choice for hot sleepers.
- Ghost Bounce layer for lasting durability and comfort
- Great pressure relief to reduce stress on the body during sleep
- Extra-long 25-year warranty
- Several cooling technologies
- Made in Canada
- Shorter sleep trial period (101 nights)
Benefits Of Using A Top Rated Mattress
One of the most obvious benefits to using a top rated mattress is that you’ll enjoy a better sleep since the mattress is higher quality and proven to help people find and keep a comfortable, supportive position during sleep. A top rated mattress must meet certain standards, and there must also be hundreds, if not thousands, of positive and 5-star reviews, meaning you can feel confident that the mattress has been tried, tested, and come out the other side with flying colours.
A top rated mattress is known for generous support in most cases. These mattresses have been used by a variety of sleepers of all sizes and weights and have provided the needed joint and lumbar support that many mattresses simply can’t compete with. When you choose a top rated mattress, you won’t have to question whether the support will be there since its top rated status proves beyond all doubt that it will keep your body aligned during sleep, no matter your sleeping position, weight, or size.
Top rated mattresses are much more durably made than mattresses that do not achieve top rated status. To be a top rated mattress, it must merit the support, cushion, and quality of the mattress will remain in excellent shape for many years to come. They often last for a minimum of ten years and can come with warranty periods of up to 25 years; if that doesn’t give you confidence that your mattress is built to last, we don’t know what will.
A top rated mattress typically has a few extra perks compared to ordinary and entry-level mattresses. They feature many useful technologies, including cooling layers, more effective support, zoning of support and comfort layers, customizability, and a bunch more. These technologies work to provide a longer, more restful sleep and are part of what makes a top rated mattress so popular. A mattress’s goal is to deliver a comfortable place to sleep, and these added technologies virtually guarantee a great night’s rest.
How to Choose Your Top Rated Mattress
Since a mattress is designed to last (hopefully) ten years, it is worth spending a bit extra to have greater durability and longevity. Shopping on a budget may result in lower durability. However, you can still find a mattress that offers the comfort and support you’re after, possibly even with a few extra technologies for a more restful sleep. Larger sizes may range into the multiple thousands, though there are many great mattresses available in a lower price range.
Whether you’re a hot sleeper or not, cooling technologies are fantastic to have in a mattress. Not only do they help keep you at an optimal sleeping temperature for deep sleep, but they also assist with keeping the mattress healthy since there is improved air flow between layers throughout the bed.
Your mattress’s firmness is one of the most important considerations since everyone has different preferences and requirements for their bed. Most top rated mattresses in Canada come in a few different firmness levels so you can customize your fit while enjoying the advanced technologies and qualities that make these mattresses so popular.
Foam-based mattresses are more durable than their spring counterparts, though a good mattress should last several years, whether it’s foam, spring, or hybrid. If your main focus is choosing a bed that will last a couple of decades, a latex-based mattress is a better option.
Particularly if you enjoy perching on the edge of the bed while you sleep, a mattress with reinforced edge support is mandatory. Many mattresses have perimeter supports to prevent the bed from sinking under weight, making it safe to sleep on the edge without fear of falling right off or simply sleeping with less support.
Motion transfer can severely impact your quality of sleep if you’re restless or have a restless partner sleeping next to you, so choosing a bed with individually wrapped coils or no coils will help keep motion transfer to a minimum.
While all beds are designed to be comfortable to sleep on, they’re not all created equal. A pillowtop mattress is guaranteed to have a few extra inches of padding between your body and the firmer support layer, so they tend to be more comfortable. However, comfort is a very personal experience, so take advantage of your sleep trial to ensure that the mattress you choose is comfortable enough for you.
We hope our guide of the best top rated mattresses in Canada has been comprehensive enough to help you choose a new fantastic mattress, or at the very least, narrow down your choices. There are many ways in which a top rated mattress outperforms lower-end competitors, and you’re virtually guaranteed a restful sleep when you choose the right mattress. Whether you’re still on the fence or have settled on a new mattress, we wish you many great nights of sleep in your future!
