Ottawa and the land within Ward 9 are built on un-ceded Anishinabe Algonquin territory. The peoples of the Anishinabe Algonquin Nation have lived on this territory for millennia. Their culture and presence have nurtured and continue to nurture this land. The City of Ottawa honours the peoples and land of the Anishinabe Algonquin Nation. The City of Ottawa honours all First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and their valuable past and present contributions to this land.
Ward 9 / Knoxdale-Merivale is an eclectic part of Ottawa that offers a rich mixture of residential neighbourhoods, commercial areas, and beautiful greenspaces. The ward boundaries include Baseline and the CN rail line to the north, the 416 highway to the west, Fallowfield Road to the south, and Fisher / Prince of Wales to the east. Our residential areas range from medium density zones just a few minutes from the downtown core, to unique, forested communities within close proximity of farmland.
At just under 43,000 residents, our diverse communities include Trend-Arlington, Craig Henry, Manordale, Tanglewood, Merivale Gardens, Pineglen, Country Place, General Burns, Cityview/Skyline, Parkwood Hills, and Fisher Heights.
Among its many greenspaces, Ward 9 is proud to include vast segments of the NCC Greenbelt, including Bruce Pit, Pinhey Forest, and large tracts of farmland. Ward 9 also contains essential commercial areas and industrial parks along Merivale Road. Our ward also boasts the Nepean Sportsplex, one of the city's largest recreational facilities.
The City Councillor for Ward 9 for 2022-26 is Sean Devine.
