CUSIP and CFMRC Dataset

If you would work with Canadian stocks info data, you would notice that CFMRC (the leading database for Canadian securities and the equivalent of CRPS (for US stocks) does not always list the CUSIP identifier with the data.

CUSIP is highly important to link the CFMRC data with other databases as tickers are not always reliable. In CFMRC (the Windows client), CUSIP is not produced in all formats. One has to select the extended format to get CUSIP in the output.
