The Best Monitor Stands and Arms in Canada 

When you’re working from home, at the office, or even just playing games – having a monitor stand or arm mount can make a world of difference in productivity and how your space feels when relaxing or being more productive. Unsightly cables, monitors being in the way of useable desk space, or having your screen too low can make work feel harder than it needs to be. 

With monitor stands and/or arms, you can raise your laptop up and type better, make space on your desk, and organize better with storage underneath your monitor with certain monitor stands. In our guide below, we can help you find something that helps you with better productivity and make your desk space a calmer, easy place to get things done. 

How to pick monitor stands and arms

Stands vs arm mounts – Monitor stands and arms/mounts are sometimes used interchangeably which can be confusing when you’re looking for a specific type of stand for your monitor(s) that works best with your space available and the ‘look’ you’re wanting. 

Monitor stands are what they sound like, stands for your laptop or monitor to sit on that will elevate it up and it is (usually) a static platform that doesn’t move. Some do have adjustable ‘levels’ or can be raised up as you’d like, but typically they are a static platform.
Monitor arms/mounts attach to your desk or wall and will essentially leave your computer monitors ‘floating’ while saving a ton of desk space and it will allow you to move your screens wherever they need to be. 

Size – Most monitor arm mounts have a weight limit or size limit for the monitors they can hold, while monitor stands only are limited by how much desk space you are willing to part with and the size that works with your laptop or screens.  

Materials – Monitor stands and arms are made from varying materials, though most are from durable metals such as steel.   

Weight management – Monitors can weigh anywhere from 5-10lbs to 45lbs. Laptops also have different weights depending on their model. Monitor stands aren’t as specific if the base can hold the weight without collapsing or slipping. With monitor arms/mounts though, the weight is incredibly important as a poorly balanced arm that can’t handle the weight will tilt downwards or even fail and crash your monitors onto your desk. Choosing the proper mount that can hold more weight than necessary is essential.

Questions about monitor arm mounts and stands

Is having a monitor stand or mount necessary?

Not at all, but they do help quite a lot when it comes to working (and playing) easier on yourself physically. Most monitors can be too low when sitting directly on a desk, and depending on your chair, etc. as well – you may be looking too far down and straining your neck and shoulders without realizing. Getting a mount can also clear up most of your desk space, making it usable and much cleaner. Most mounts have cable management systems built in so no unsightly cable hazards or clutter to collect dust and pet hair. 

With arm mounts, you can also move the monitor (or several if you have more than one) in any direct you need, without accidentally damaging it or fighting with a stubborn monitor platform that has no adjustments allowed initially.
