Bring Your Ideas To Life!

Love TR is a movement connecting people with the independent locally-owned businesses that are Tumbler Ridge’s heart and soul. The program is supported by the Northern Development Initiative Trust and the District of Tumbler Ridge.  It is delivered by our local Chamber of Commerce.

Have you got an idea for a business and don’t know where to start?  The prospect of starting a business or taking over an existing business is an exciting time. For some people, however, it can be a little daunting and overwhelming. 

Perhaps you are further along and need support to build your business plan or look for financing. Regardless of where you’re at Tumbler Ridge’s Economic Development Office is committed to helping you navigate through the steps, finding the resources and information you need and connecting you to the right people.

All active businesses in the District of Tumbler Ridge are required to have a valid Tumbler Ridge Business Licence and to comply with the District’s Business Bylaw No. 644.

In addition, Bylaw No. 645 outlines details of Tumbler Ridge’s Inter-Community Business Licence which is a partnership with our neighbouring communities of Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Chetwynd, Hudson’s Hope, Taylor and Pouce Coupe.

For an additional fee of $130 per year, Tumbler Ridge businesses can operate in any of the participating communities without having to purchase individual business licences in those communities. The same applies to businesses from these other communities that wish to operate in Tumbler Ridge.
