Carp Road (Ottawa Road #5) is an arterial road in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada that runs between Fitzroy Harbour and Stittsville, through the village of Carp. The road is located in the city's west end, beginning in Fitzroy Harbour at Galetta Side Road and ending in Stittsville at Stittsville Main Street. Most of the route is rural with the exception of Stittsville where the road travels in a residential development. Ottawa Regional Road #5 continues as Stittsville Main Street south of Carp Road, then becomes Huntley Road south of Stittsville toward the town of Richmond.

A curious artifact of pre-amalgamation Ottawa is the inconsistent numbering of addresses on Carp Road, divided at the intersection of Rothbourne Road, the boundary of the former townships of Goulbourn and West Carleton: Addresses begin at 1000 and run south toward Stittsville in Goulbourn, but begin at 2000 and run north toward Fitzroy Harbour in West Carleton.

Among the more famous landmarks along the road are:
