Canadian Tire Centre (French: Centre Canadian Tire) is a multi-purpose indoor arena in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, located in the western suburb of Kanata. It opened in January 1996 as The Palladium and was also known as Corel Centre from 1996 to 2006 and Scotiabank Place from 2006 to 2013.


The arena is primarily used for ice hockey, serving as the home arena of the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL) since its opening in 1996, and as a temporary home for the Ottawa 67's of the Ontario Hockey League during renovations at its arena. The arena is also used regularly for music concerts and has hosted events such as the Canadian Interuniversity Sport men's basketball championship and the 2009 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships.

  • Went here for the Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses in 2019. This was a great place to meet at! The seating was comfortable, and a little more depending on the area of seating regarding the wide seats. The center displays were of great quality to watch. Easy to navigate the floors. No issues with parking but leaving via Palladium Dr towards Hwy 61 can be very slow. Overall, I would go here again! Thanks to the staff for having us!
  • What can I say? It's an arena first and a nice local venue for local and international artists. Went to see The Twins of Evil, Marylin Manson and Rob Zombie. The show itself was Great! Rob Zombie kicked it up a notch. We used the valet parking. It's a bit expensive but totally worth every dollar. You get out of the show as one of the first to access the 417 after a few detours. The staff was friendly and used to large crowds. Again, every beverage and concession are a bit over priced but still "within reason". 15$ after a mediocre tip for a beer is a bit expensive. But not as much as let's say in Toronto. Washrooms could of been a bit cleaner, but again to be expected with large crowds. Next I will be coming back for a Sens game. 😊
