Although you live in Canada, you could access Evergreen Scientific for 
there tidy little Immuno Stain Moisture Chamber either in clear or black, 
hold 10 slides per box with each slide in individual slots.   Approx 
$80/pkg of 3 boxes.   http://www.evergreensci.com   or

I have seen these boxes from other vendors but do not recall where.  These 
boxes very efficient, cheap and fit in incubators, desktops or 
refrigerators.  We use them frequently for cold temperature antibody 
incubation.  Evergreen also manufactures for other companies, and they may 
have a source in Canada.

Also Scytek (Logan Utah) has humidity chamber.  Holds 20 slides with drip 
tray, slide holder tilts easy rinsing, slides stay in place from start to 
finish, comes with white plastic inserts to put in back of slides to 
observe chromogen development, and clear plastic lids over slide holders 
for easy access to slides for reagent application.  SlideMasters are approx 
$400 US dollars.  They fit in a refrigerator, incubator, or on bench 
top.  I have 6 of them, and love using them. Go to www.scytek.com 
website.  We often set up 5 Slidemasters for one days staining of 100 
slides.  Great for a small laboratory looking for more efficient manual IHC
