Barrington Passage is a community in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, located in the Barrington municipal district of Shelburne County.[2]

History[edit]

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.

Sports[edit]

Barrington's indoor hockey arena is home to a Nova Scotia Junior C Hockey team, the Sea Star Ice Dogs.
