Mooney's Bay is an O-Train station along the Trillium Line located near Heron Road and Bronson Avenue in Ottawa, Ontario, which primarily serves the Government of Canada offices in the Confederation Heights area, and students from Brookfield High School. Recently, a pedestrian and cyclist path was built, providing a direct link between Mooney’s Bay Station and Brookfield Road.

The station was originally named Confederation after the area in which the station is located, Confederation Heights. On December 24, 2017, the station was renamed to Mooney’s Bay to avoid confusion with the O-Train's new Confederation Line that is scheduled to open in 2018. Station[1].
