One more small contribution to the public understanding of the release of names of companies that received PNP investment: use this tool to search for specific companies.
Using open source tools to spread open source data: that’s what it’s all about.
Update: I’ve now got three searches in place:
- Search the PNP list released by the Province
- Search the PNP list merged with the 2008 OpenCorporations.org data — remembering that this is old data, this search allows you to search the “description of business”, and can be helpful in identifying numbered companies.
- Search the PNP list merged with the 2008 OpenCorporations.org data, with shareholders and officers — again remembering that this is 2008 shareholder and officer data, and that the shareholders and officers involved in November 2008 may not have been shareholders and officers when the PNP investment was received, this search allows a “people search” of PNP companies by officer (president, shareholder, etc.).
