These boundaries designated by the Lieutenant Governor in council and published as regulations which establishes the Ministry's management areas. These boundaries have changed from the boundaries captured in FADM DISTRICT REGION object due to the change in administrative areas, due to downsizing in 2001 from 6 to 3.
