Gloucester-Southgate Ward is a city ward located in Ottawa, Ontario. Located in the city's south end, the ward includes Gloucester Glen east of the Rideau River, most of the Ottawa International Airport, CFB Uplands, Blossom Park, Greenboro, portions of Heron Gate south of Walkley Road, the Ottawa South/Hawthorne Industrial Park and rural areas west of Anderson Road and north of Leitrim. Previously, the ward included the community of Riverside South located south of the airport but in a ward reorganization, the growing community was included in the new ward of Gloucester-South Nepean.

Prior to amalgamation, this area was covered by Southgate Ward. Southgate Ward was known as Billings Ward from 1980 to 1994, and Gloucester Ward prior to that. The ward was created in 1950, when the area was annexed from Gloucester Township. From 1952 to 1956 it was part of Ward 1.

City councillors[edit]

Prior to 1950, the area was part of Gloucester Township. Township council was elected on an at-large basis, meaning no wards existed.

Ward merged with Rideau Ward to become Ward 1 from 1952-1956
