our story

9ja In Canada was founded on August 22nd, 2018. Our story began by the determination of a fellow Nigerian immigrant to solve a problem while making a difference within her community. 9ja is the abbreviation for Nigerian/Nigeria, our name says who we are. We are Nigerians in Canada.

When compared to Europe and the United States, Canada is a new settlement destination for Nigerian Immigrants. This means that finding settlement information to aid landing from outside Canada might yield little or no results, even navigating and sourcing daily supplies needed in a Nigerian home can be challenging.

The birth of 9ja In Canada aims to change the Nigerian narrative of having to know someone in order to acquire information and get things done. We aim to leave a place better than we have found it by providing you with resources focused on helping you settle into Canada.
