Barrington Passage is a community in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, located in the Barrington municipal district of Shelburne County. It is named after William Barrington, 2nd Viscount Barrington.
While Barrington has grown substantially over the past decade, it has experienced tough economic times because of a shortage of lobster (the primary industry).
A causeway to Cape Sable Island was opened in 1949 to replace the ferry service, which had had to run through heavy currents. A bridge had been considered but was rejected.
Barrington's indoor hockey arena is home to a Nova Scotia Junior C Hockey team, the Sea Star Ice Dogs.
