With this partnership, First Canadian GPO will begin offering Loop’s proprietary Loop Player and Loop TV service to its 7,000 members, providing these businesses with a new way to engage with customers using both television channels, and digital signage.

First Canadian GPO serves members across various industries and in 800 cities and towns throughout Canada. The company continuously works to identify partners that can offer high-quality products to its members at the most competitive prices. Loop Media emerged as a logical partner for First Canadian GPO's members, as it not only provides outstanding music and entertainment television channels and digital signage but also provides its services at no cost to businesses. This collaboration benefits all parties involved, fostering new opportunities for growth and enhancing customer engagement.

"First Canadian is excited to present Loop Media's Loop TV streaming video service to our extensive network of 7,000 members," announced Matt Toews, CEO of First Canadian GPO.
