Longfields is a community located in Ottawa, Ontario. This recent neighbourhood is located within the growing suburb of Barrhaven in the city's southwest and bordered by Greenbank Road, Strandherd Drive and Woodroffe Avenue.

Longfields was mostly built in the early 1990s during Barrhaven major expansion during that period. Today, there is still development underway particularly near the intersection of Longfields Drive and Strandherd Road in which it is conjunction of the development of Chapman Mills located just to the south of it (south of Strandherd). Barrhaven's most recent Catholic high school, Mother Teresa, was built there alongside an elementary school  : Pierre Elliott Trudeau. There are plans for low-rise condominiums buildings. The future southwest transitway extension will travel just north of the community along the Via Rail train line. Also, a new station in the transitway corridor ( named Longfields, after the neighborhood) was built and opened in the Spring of 2011 [1][2].

There are also plans for major development south of Longfields with a large employment zone as well as a possible expansion of the O-Train north-south light rail project which was canceled in December 2006.
