Tanya Hein

Tanya Hein

President

I moved to the western edge of Stittsville in December 2005, and immediately felt at home. Like many ‘new’ residents, I was charmed by Stittsville’s village character — the unique main street corridor, the heritage features and rich history, the parks, forests, and trails, and the neighbours and business operators who quickly became friends. 

My husband and I are proud to be raising our four sons in Stittsville. Volunteerism abounds here, and we benefit from engaged citizens who value Stittsville’s character and and the sense of connection residents seem to have to each other and to the community. I joined the SVA in 2009 to contribute more to the effort to preserve the village elements I love about Stittsville, even as we face intense, and often rapid, growth.

In addition to monitoring planning and development applications for the SVA in Ward 6, I am team lead for both Canada Day festivities and the Parade of Lights; volunteer as a director for Ottawa Neighbourhood Watch; am past chair and current parent representative on my children’s school council; serve as ‘Business Development Elf ‘ for the Stocking Project; and offer free sewing lessons to fellow moms in my spare time.

My office and home are located on the Coveredbridge Way in West Carleton. I have been a member of the SVA for at least 7 or 8 years.  Our company is the property manager for the Fringewood North mobile home community as well as 10 houses which which the company rents.This gives me a perspective to know the challenges of the people of Stittsville especially those who live along Hazeldean Road. I have a special interest in the road network and the improvement facilities which will allow easier commutes.

We moved to Stittsville from Winnipeg 8 years ago and after looking at houses all across Ottawa, settled in Stittsville in Crossing Bridge.  A great place for families.  Stittsville has a sense of country and yet close to the city.

Trevor moved to Stittsville from Vancouver 5 years ago with his family and now lives in the Fairwinds community.  He has worked for numerous non-profits in the role of advocacy and public engagement.  It was his desire to mix his passion for helping grow Stittsville into the type of community he wanted to raise his children with his advocacy and public engagement skills that motivated him to create the Stittsville Pumpkin Parade three years ago.  A believer in one person’s ability to make an impact in his community, Trevor is hoping to align his vision and passion for Stittsville’s future with other like minded people in the Stittsville Village Association to see what we can accomplish.
