Barrington Passage is a community in the southern part of Nova Scotia and is part of the Barrington municipal district of Shelburne County.

The town is named after William Barrington. The area was settled in 1760 by eighty families from Cape Cod and Nantucket, Massachusetts. Barrington has grown over the past decade but has experienced tough economic times because of a shortage of lobster. A causeway takes you to Cape Sable Island which was opened in 1949 to replace the ferry service.
