Resumo: The implications of the concept of ‘sustainable tourism’ are not clearly defined as they relate to Northern Vancouver Island leading to difficulties in tourism planning. A solution to this problem will be presented through a novel approach to tourism management using a combination of Factor Analysis, Adaptive Management, and a modified DPSIR (Driver- Pressure, State, Impact, Response) framework, based on community perception. The approach will provide a pragmatic framework for sustainable tourism development and is especially applicable when recognizing the complex and adaptive nature of tourism as a social-ecological system. This analysis will focus on sustainable tourism theory actualization at a regional scale (Northern Vancouver Island, BC, Canada). The identified latent variables (factors) indicate a common origin of impact perception, thus factors can be used to identify common pressures in the causal nexus to develop proactive and long-term responses. Recommendations are made for government regulators and tourism operators that recognize the need for continuous improvement through the inclusion of adaptive management for sustainable development of coastal tourism.
