More than 8.000 remote workers are now residing in the Canary Island.

Coworking spaces pop up everywhere in the archipel, recording a 10% monthly growth in occupancy.

The regional government is on track with the objective of bringing 30.000 foreign remote workers on the islands by the end of the decade.

The authorities have put in place financial incentives, infrastructure development to ensure reliable internet connectivity, and streamlined visa processes. France, Germany, UK and, increasingly, the US, are the countries where remote coworkers installed in the Canary Islands come the most from.

The growing number of coworking and coliving hubs foster a sense of community and act as springboards for new ideas and collaborations, states the Canarian Weekly newspaper. Remote workers bring a less seasonal dependent flow of residents with a reasonably high purchase power.
