About Tumbler Ridge

Set in the rolling foothills of the Rocky Mountains at the confluence of the Murray and Wolverine Rivers in northeastern BC, Tumbler Ridge is 115 km (71 mi) southwest of Mile Zero of the Alaska Highway in Dawson Creek and 1186 km (745 mi) north of Vancouver, with an elevation of 830 m (2,739 ft) and a population of close to 3,000 people.

This master-planned community is the youngest in Canada, built from scratch in the 1980s to service the flourishing coal industry. Here we have comfortable modern living in a glorious wilderness setting.
