Barrhaven Ward (Ward 3) is a city ward in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Prior to 2006, the ward was known as Bell-South Nepean Ward.

The ward consists of the neighbourhoods of Cedarhill Estates, Orchard Estates, The Meadows, Pheasant Run, Fraservale, Barrhaven, Knollsbrook and Longfields.

Prior to 2006, the ward was much larger encompassing the neighbourhoods of Heart's Desire, Jockvale, Davidson Heights, Rideau Glen, Boyce, Clearview, Country Place, Victory Hill, Pineglen, Merivale Gardens, Grenfell Glen, Arbeatha Park, Westcliffe Estates, Lynwood Village, Twin Elm, Fallowfield and Bells Corners. These areas were transferred to new wards: The Bells Corners area went to College Ward, the areas along Hunt Club joined Knoxdale-Merivale Ward, Heart's Desire and Davidson Heights joined the new Gloucester-South Nepean Ward and the rural parts joined Rideau-Goulbourn Ward.

The Ward has been served by Jan Harder on Ottawa City Council since the area was amalgamated into Ottawa in 2000. She was also the city councillor for Barrhaven Ward on Nepean City Council prior to that.
