Welcome to Naija Girl Canadian Adventure. My name is Abi and this is an online chronicle of my adventure moving to, settling, and becoming self-employed in Canada.

I’ve led an extraordinary life despite all odds. I’ve lived abroad for the last 13 years of my life, 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.

After 6 months, I finally found 3 people randomly online and was able to ask them a few questions about the self-employment immigration program.

However, I realised 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.

This is why I started Naija Girl Canadian Adventure. I moved to Canada in 2019 and been sharing 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 as I embark on this new adventure.
