Top 5 Best office chairs with adjustable armrests in Canada

Are you looking for the best office chair with adjustable armrests in Canada? Below are my top picks. And I picked them for very good reasons! Let’s see what they are.

Billups ergonomic mesh arm chair ($ 220.21)

The Billups ergonomic chair has several adjustable features that can help you find the sweet spot for your height. I’ll be mentioning them down below.

The cushion is adequately padded so it’s quite comfortable. And it’s somewhere between firm and soft. The nice contour of the cushion hugs your butt firmly so it doesn’t just lay flat on the seat. Thus, it can give more support and prevent pain. 

What I find unique is that this ergonomic chair is a combination of a padded seat and a mesh back seat. So you’re getting the best of both worlds. The mesh seat is breathable. But the comfort level for the mesh of this chair is quite subjective. If you love firm support, you’ll find it great. But for those who are used to a lush backseat, they might find it too firm when sat on for longer. 

In addition, the height adjustment for the back is quite a lot. So you can find the perfect height. it can also cater to more users with a broad range.

As for the armrests, they can be adjusted up and down so you can change the height of the arms and they are also cushioned. So it adds more comfort. And if ever you don’t want the armrests in the way, they are removable too.

The assembly was quick at 20 minutes. But it does not have any word instruction, it only has pictures. Regardless, it’s still easy to set up.

The seat, back seat, and headrest has a mesh covering. And the adjustable lumbar support matches well what the high back seat of the chair. So it can cater to more users. 

The entire chair is breathable and can provide firmer support. The headrest for one is a great plus. Not all ergonomic office chairs have an adjustable headrest. It’s multi rotating, so your neck and head can be comparable even for longer sitting. No strained neck or whatsoever. 

One of the more amazing features is the 3d armrests. While most office chairs may have armrests that can move up and down, this brand is a lot more. The armrests can be adjusted up and down, and it can be moved towards or away from your body. It can also be moved back and forth. And when there are multiple adjustments, more users will be happy and comfortable.

Overall, it’s a comfortable chair. And then the synchro-tilt mechanism is such a bonus. It allows for more ergonomic seating. With a lot of adjustment levels, a 6’2” and a 5’2” person will both find this chair very comfortable

And if you want a rocking chair, you can get a bit of that with this office chair. You can subtly rock the chair back and forth. It may not be fully rockable, but it’s enough to jolt some energy into your body. The backseat is contoured and it follows the curve of the spine. And the lumbar support is also adjustable.

The seat is made of PU leather and the backseat is of a mesh material. Though the seat is padded, it provides more firm support. So if you’re looking for soft serenity, this might not be for you. This is for those who want firmer support on the buttocks.

Valencia ergonomic office chair ($227.55)

Now I’ve found an ergonomic chair that has completely adjustable features, including an adjustable seat depth! How convenient can that be?

The Valencia ergonomic office chair can be one of the most comfortable and most adjustable office chairs in the Canadian market. Finding an office chair with the works isn’t easy, especially if it comes with an adjustable seat depth. So I’ll be listing down the chair’s convenient adjustable features,

The seat depth and seat angle of the chair are adjustable. So if you have long legs, this will be such a treat. You longer have that awkward position with your knees sticking out of the chair. You can find the most comfortable position with the seta depth and angle.

It’s going to be sweet and sublime for your back as well. With the combination of an adjustable lumbar and synchro-tilt function, you can find the most comfortable spot. The synchro tilt also allows your back to have mini breaks in between.

Paisleigh ergonomic chair ($281.55)

If you need an office chair that has a reclining function and adjustable armrests, the Paisleigh office chair can be your favorite.

It’s rather comfortable with the multiple adjustment features. The reclining function is very handy when you just want to stretch your back for a bit. And did I mention that it also has a seat depth adjustment? So it could be a contender for one of the best adjustable ergonomic chairs. 

Moreover, the adjustable lumbar support and synchro-tilt function work hand in hand to give you the best position for your spine. 

Over to the armrests, they are two-way adjustable. So they can be adjusted up and down. Though I’d wanted a 3d or a 4d adjustable armrest, with all the convenient adjustable features, I am not complaining anymore.

The seat, I find a bit firm. It’s molded padding with upholstered fabric. If you love a too firm seat, you’d be happy with it. 

And to amp up the comfort level., it has a pull-away footrest. In fairness to the brand, the footrest isn’t flimsy like most mid-range office chairs that have a built-in footrest. This one feels pretty solid and looks well integrated into the entire unit.


  • Has a lot of adjustable features
  • Includes a pull away footrest
  • Breathable mesh back seat
  • Adjustable head and neck rest
  • Has a built-in reclining function


  • The seat can be too firm

Final takeaway

More than the armrests, these office chairs are highly adjustable. And they can give the more popular office chairs a run for their money. The Canadian market favors actual performance over popularity. That’s why these brands aren’t that popular in the market, but they sure have a lot in store for you.
