In 1985, an ecoregion classification system was adopted by the Wildlife Branch of the Ministry of Environment as a framework for managing the diverse nature of B.C.'s topography, climate and ecosystems. The ecoregion classification system was established to help in area-based planning, one of the core reasons for water quality objectives development. Using this classification system as a model, the Vancouver Island Region (VIR) has initiated an ecoregion-based approach to water quality objectives development.
