The Council's Honour Roll Awards recognize six companies, located in Halton, in two categories:

St. Peter Catholic Elementary School in Milton won in the 51 or more employees category for its ongoing support of Co-op, Child and Youth Worker Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP), Early Childhood Education OYAP, and its multiple leadership and peer tutoring programs.

Bishop P.F. Reding Catholic Secondary School student Katie Gumbell was also successful at the awards, winning a $500 scholarship to be used toward a career in the skilled trades.
