Premier Kathleen Wynne will spend the day in Ottawa on Thursday and on her to-do list: Meet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Wynne wants to push Harper for federal funding for infrastructure projects in the Ring of Fire.
The meeting comes after Cliffs Natural Resources announced it wouldn't spend any more money on a chromite mine project in Northern Ontario.
The company was prepared to spend billions north of Sudbury.
The main sticking point: lack of access to the site.
Wynne sent a letter to Harper in November listing off areas where federal infrastructure investment has led to economic development for Canada. She told the prime minister the province and country can bring in $60 billion through development in the Ring of Fire.
Last month, Progressive Conservative Finance Critic Vic Fedeli said the province ignored the fact that there was no access to the site. NDP leader Andrea Horwath said the province's "bungling" has snuffed out a major job creation opportunity.
The province has maintained Cliffs pulling out does not mean the end of development in the area. It claims there is still a list of other companies interested in the Ring of Fire.
