A small Inuit community in Labrador has declared a state of emergency.

The community of Hopedale on the eastern shores of Labrador is struggling to provide water to its residents.

A water main broke weeks ago leaving very little water pressure. The community has been without water for the past week.

The community is waiting on the province to provide help.
