The future for Canillas de Aceituno
With a high young unemployment rate within the rural Axarquia region and an ageing population, the village of Canillas de Aceituno along with most rural villages in the area, is in need of an injection of employment opportunities, and a new impetus for the working environment.
After a meeting of local residents, and consultation with the town hall, it was decided to implement a series of work creating and social projects, under the umbrella of Canillas Creative Community a non profit organisation, funded by grants from the European Union, the Junta de Andalucia, and various other sources.
A facility for the development and use of small-medium enterprises, to be available at beneficial rates, offering workspaces during the start up period, with help in the application for obtaining grants/loans will also be available.
Further proposals are a community facility incorporating, a drama/exhibition area, a small local cinema/theatre, and an audio-visual studio. All to be used for both vocational training purposes, and for the enjoyment of the local population.
With the aid of this website, and with the enthusiasm and support of the town council, new businesses will be able to prosper and grow within the wonderful environment of Canillas de Aceituno, and enjoy this wonderful town set in the Sierras of Tejeda, Almijara and Almara Natural Park.
