Three cities.
Two countries.
One language.

Canela is an independent communications agency with more than 16 years experience in the Iberian market. We are not part of a large corporation, which allows us to safeguard our essence as we continue to evolve.

We currently have offices in Barcelona, Madrid and Lisbon. We are in two countries but we speak only one language: one where we are aware of the impact of our decisions and therefore, before making them, we always measure the personal, social and environmental cost they will have. 

We work with brands and clients who share our values, philosophy and way of seeing the world. And we work every day to become the Iberian agency of choice for companies in the regenerative economy.

We are a B Corp

We were one of the first communication agencies in Spain and Portugal to receive a B Corp certification, joining a global network of more than 5,000 companies around the world that are committed to do things in a different way, meeting high standards in terms of social and environmental impact, transparency and corporate responsibility.

You can find out more about that in our Impact Report 2023.


Our team is what makes us different. That’s why we are committed to them: to their training, well-being and professional development. Members of Canela team have been to San Francisco, London and Frankfurt for training and personalised courses, but we don’t just focus on the big headlines, we also focus on the day-to-day things: work-life balance, flexible working models and conditions.

And in an industry known for its high employee rotation, we are proud to say that we have a well above-average employee retention and have been named as one of the top five Best Agencies to Work For in EMEA for the 6 years running.

We support initiatives that change the world

We are aware that our responsibility and impact does not end at our office doors, which is why we have #CanelaCares, a Corporate Social Responsibility programme through which we support non-profit initiatives and which allows us to help organizations such as KUBUKA, Arconatura, Open Arms, PertenSer, CEAR, Ayuntamiento de El Paso and Juegaterapia.
