OAKVILLE, ON, June 7, 2016 /CNW/ - IDS Canada, the largest media company in Canada focusing specifically on healthcare waiting rooms, is expanding their unique digital poster network by adding a further 50 screens, 25 in each of Vancouver and Montreal.  With a launch date of August 15, 2016, IDS Canada will have developed a substantial network of 200 digital poster screens in the top three urban areas in the country, generating over two million consumer impressions per month.
