Ridge is one of B.C.'s newest towns, it was incorporated in 1981,
and does not have the typical instant-town look, due to good planning.
town was built to provide a home and community to the employees
and families who work at the two big mines. The building and development
of Tumbler Ridge and transportation facilities was B.C.'s largest
industrial endeavor. Tumbler Ridge is on a plateau, with the Wolverine,
Murray and Flatbed Rivers nearby, and is surrounded by mountains,
forests and rolling hills. Facilities are all close to the town
centre and the modern services are enjoyed by residents and visitors
