One person is dead and eight others are injured, some seriously, after a small plane crashed in Snow Lake, Man., about 700 kilometres north of Winnipeg.
Authorities say the Cessna 208 Global Air went down just after 10 a.m. in a remote area about 10 kilometres east of the Snow Lake airport.
Rescue crews are using snowmobiles to reach the scene.
Officials say poor weather conditions in the area are preventing air support from taking part in the rescue mission.
A Canadian Forces Search and Rescue aircraft has been dispatched but can only provide limited assistance because of the weather.
