Welcome to The Tumbler Ridge Chamber of Commerce
The Tumbler Ridge Chamber of Commerce is focused on the development of businesses, charities and individuals serving the Tumbler Ridge community.
We're all about connections! The Chamber exclusively recommends our members in sales inquires and seeks to network those with matching objectives. We enable businesses to explore new markets, expand their advertising reach, and share the benefits of our far reaching voice. Our brand new member directory highlights the best of what Tumbler Ridge has to offer!
The Tumbler Ridge Chamber of Commerce members represent a lobbying power far greater than any one business can have alone. Through policy development, the Chamber lobbies on behalf of its members to government at the municipal, provincial and federal levels.
Our popular "Lunch and Learn" events provide valuable workshops and seminars on topics requested by our members. Themes range from hiring staff to start-up finance, and frequently invite outside experts in to share their knowledge The lunches themselves provide a great opportunity to feed your business appetite while meeting other attendees from the region!
We fight to ensure a fair and equal playing field that pushes business and community growth, without external bias
We're experts on our local region! If you're looking for recommendations of where to eat, where to sleep, or what to do, get in touch!!
TR Chamber Members have access to promotions and discounts not available to the general public.

“The Chamber has been a strong partner to Conuma Coal and is an asset to Tumbler Ridge. Through her connections, Jerrilyn linked Conuma Coal to a company looking for an ongoing supply of metallurgical coal for buyers in the US, destined for US and Asian markets. Through our relationship with the chamber, we were able to meet with the new CEO of the BC Chamber, and bring our operational challenges forward at a provincial level...”
“The TR Children's Centre Society were very apprehensive of the complex and disruptive changes brought in by the new Societies Act. The Chamber became an invaluable resource to us by hosting a detailed, and informative seminar on exactly how the new regulations affected our society. The training enabled us to confidently implement the necessary structural changes without too much of a headache!”
“We like working with the Tumbler Ridge Chamber of Commerce, because as a member we have been able to contribute to important community projects such as the Job Creation Program.
