The Mountain Pine Beetle Initiative is a federal government response to the mountain pine beetle epidemic in British Columbia (BC). The First Nations Mountain Pine Beetle Element (FNBE), a component under the Mountain Pine Beetle Initiative, assists First Nations with efforts in addressing the mountain pine beetle.

The Operational Guidelines provide information on the epidemic and describe the procedures for participating in the FNBE. They outline the operational guidelines of the program and contain an application form for developing a project proposal and applying for assistance. Through the FNBE, First Nations can obtain technical and funding assistance for activities relating to mountain pine beetle management, control, and rehabilitation on reserve forestlands.
