Welcome to Naija Girl Canadian Adventure. My name is Abi and I launched this website in 2018 to chronicle my journey to immigrating to Canada under the federal self-employed program.

I’ve lived abroad for over 13 years, starting with Dubai, UAE, which remains very close to my heart.

When I started considering applying under the federal self-employed stream, I dug high and low through every corner of the Internet and could not find proper information regarding this stream.

I realized there was definitely a need for a composite resource that would provide useful information for people thinking about applying under the Federal Self-Employed Stream from someone who has done it.

This led to the launch of Naija Girl Canadian Adventure. I moved to Canada in 2019 and continue to share tales of my experience and journey, tips on moving to and living in Canada, personal finance for self-employed newcomers and so much more.

In the meantime, you can get started with resources at Naija Girl Canadian Adventure Archives.

If you’re interested in how I obtained my Permanent Residence, you can read about that journey at My Federal Self-Employed Application Story.

The information on this website is my own personal experience and knowledge.
