Stittsville (Ward 6) is a city ward in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It consists of the community of Stittsville in suburban Ottawa. Prior to the 2006 election, the Ward was known as Goulbourn Ward which consisted of the former Goulbourn Township (including Stittsville and Richmond). The ward as altered in 2006, by losing all of the rural parts of Goulbourn (including urban Richmond) and gaining a tiny bit of the former city of Kanata around Scotiabank Place. The ward was created when Goulbourn was amalgamated into Ottawa in 2000. It was known as Stittsville-Kanata West Ward until 2010.

Stittsville's current councillor is Shad Qadri, who replaced Janet Stavinga in the 2006 election, in which Ms. Stavinga did not run. She had held the ward since its creation.
