Provincial cabinet ministers are in high demand this week at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference in London.

Northern Development and Indigenous Affairs Minister Greg Rickford is one of those in attendance.

He says in addition to getting a wish list from towns and cities, it gives the ministers a chance to get an update on what's going on.

"It's also a time to check in on projects that we're making significant progress with.  Any issues related to them and trying to understand how we can turn them into opportunities."

The AMO conference wraps on Wednesday.
