Rideau-Goulbourn Ward is a city ward located in Ottawa, Ontario. Situated in the rural south end of the city, the ward includes rural areas west of the Rideau River and the communities of Manotick, Richmond, North Gower, Munster, Kars, Fallowfield, Ashton and Burritts Rapids as well as Goulbourn Township south and west of Stittsville.

Before 2006, the ward was known as Rideau Ward and was increased in coverage as the new ward of Stittsville was created from parts of the former Kanata and Goulbourn Wards due to population growth in Stittsville as well as new developments in the west portions of the former city of Kanata. Portions of Goulbourn Township was added to Rideau Ward. In 2014, the new Blackstone subdivision was transferred from Rideau-Goulbourn Ward to Stittsville Ward.

Prior to being amalgamated into Ottawa, this areas was represented on Regional council by Western Townships Ward.
