In the present paper, the relation between the dominant regions in the $m$-Shi arrangement of types $B_n/C_n$, and those of the $m$-Shi arrangement of type $A_{n-1}$ is investigated. More precisely, it is shown explicitly how the sets $R^m(B_n)$ and $R^m(C_n)$, of dominant regions of the $m$-Shi arrangement of types $B_n$ and $C_n$ respectively, can be projected to the set $R^m(A_{n-1})$ of dominant regions of the $m$-Shi arrangement of type $A_{n-1}$. This is done by using two different viewpoints for the representative alcoves of these regions: the Shi tableaux and the abacus diagrams. Moreover, bijections between the sets $R^m(B_n)$, $R^m(C_n)$, and lattice paths inside a rectangle $n\times{mn}$ are provided.
