About Us

Keeping residents more informed, interested and engaged in our community. That’s our mission at StittsvilleCentral.ca.

This is an independent, community-driven web site published with the generous help of writers, photographers and other contributors from the neighbourhood.

Stittsville is growing and changing so quickly.  What was once a quiet rural village is now one of Ottawa’s fastest growing suburbs.  Who are the interesting new people and businesses driving the growth?  And what affect does this growth have on the people who live here?   How do we maintain the values and charm of the old village as we continue to grow?  These are the stories that we share here.

The editor of StittsvilleCental.ca is Devyn Barrie, a recent Algonquin College Journalism graduate and freelancer for many Ottawa publications.  You can reach Devyn at feedback@stittsvillecentral.ca

StittsvilleCentral.ca was founded in 2014 by Glen Gower, a life-long Ottawa resident and a Stittsville resident since 2009.  “My friend Trevor Eggleton recently said, ‘people who live in a community aren’t just residents in the community, they’re participants in the community.’ This is my way of contributing something back,” he says.

As Glen is running for a council seat in the 2018 municipal election, he has stepped away from the operations of StittsvilleCentral.ca and has no editorial input. Please direct editorial matters to Devyn Barrie.
