This repository contains code to scrape Industry Canada's Federal Corporation search tool.

Results are scraped by searching by Corporation Number as a 6 digit integer. The search string is prefix matched to the Corporation Number, resulting in up to 10 results in an HTML table. This table is scraped into a CSV file.

Requires: Scrappy Perl scraping library

Installing Dependencies: The easiest way is to install cpanm ("CPAN minus" - a great little Perl package manager) and then use it to install Scrappy:

  As root: curl -L | perl - --self-upgrade
  Then: cpanm --sudo Scrappy
