Inter-Community Mobile Business Licence:

In addition to a Standard Business Licence, for an additional cost of $130.00, some businesses can qualify for an Inter-Community Business Licence, which authorizes Inter-Community Business to be carried on within the boundaries of any or all participating governments. This unique advantage allows businesses in Tumbler Ridge to work in adjacent participating communities without purchasing multiple additional business licences.
