Self rising flour contains leavening agents...or baking powder.. Regular flour is just plain all purpose flour.
You can make your own SRF by adding a teaspoon of baking powder (and optionally a pinch or two of salt) to a cup of all purpose flour. and sifting it three times ( in order to incorporate).

Chembake gives the recipe but, as you live in Canada, it should be available at your local supermarket. It is widely available in Calgary, for example. Graham

Traditionally in the bakery, we used to make self raising flour for our scones. We used the ratio of one ounce to the pund.... in other words in today's language, it is 1:16 baking powder:/Flour
It is important to sieve well, which assists the mixing process, and also removes any concentrated levels of baking powder.
If the reaction is too strong, or the taste is too prevalent, then reduce the ratio.
