A community in northern Labrador is now dealing with a large scale mould problem.

This fall, testing confirmed that 100 homes in Natuashish need renovations.

The Conservative MP for Labrador and Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Peter Penashue says Ottawa will help pay to fix the problem.

Some of the mould is toxic and linked to human illnesses and respiratory problems.

When ventilation systems are not being correctly installed, this in turn leads to higher levels of moisture being trapped inside the homes.
