Timmins is hosting a Northern Ontario Summit on Friday.
Cabinet Ministers including Gravelle and Orazietti along with Premier Wynne and Northern Ontario leaders will be getting together to discuss the Growth Plan.
In August, the Northern Ontario Large Urban Mayors created a document of the six most important things for moving the North forward.
Mayor Tom Laughren says they probably won't be able to cover off all the topics on the growth plan in one day, let alone set a direction for the North, but he is hoping that this will create opportunities for more meetings.
He says he doesn't know what the next step will be until he see's what they accomplish on Friday.
