Naming

The arena was originally called "The Palladium" to coincide with the Roman theme of the Ottawa Senators. The road connecting the arena to the 417 highway and Kanata is still named Palladium Drive. In February 1996, the Corel Corporation, an Ottawa software company, signed a 10-year deal to purchase the naming rights for the Palladium, thus rebranding it as the "Corel Centre". On January 13, 2006 the arena became known as Scotiabank Place after reaching a new 15 year naming agreement with the bank.

Financing and Development Struggles

For several years after the Senators' franchise was granted, the team had trouble securing financing for the construction of an arena. The team received no financial help from the provincial government, including a refusal to pay for a new highway interchange to serve the proposed arena site. Despite the lack of financing, a ground-breaking ceremony was held in June 1992. On August 17, 1993, Bruce Firestone, the Senators owner, resigned after missing mortgage and development payments and was replaced by Rod Bryden, a former high tech tycoon. A year later, Bryden managed to borrow enough to pay for the $188 million arena [2]. Unfortunately this debt proved too much for the Senators' organization to handle when the mortgage holder Covanta Energy (formerly Ogden Entertainment) went into receivership and the Club was expected to pay off the whole debt. This eventually lead to the club itself declaring bankruptcy in 2003. However, on August 26, 2003, billionaire businessman Eugene Melnyk finalized a deal to purchase both the Senators and the arena. 1992 was a leap year starting on Wednesday. ... is the 229th day of the year (230th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Location

Although widely acknowledged as a well-designed arena, it has been criticized in the years since construction for being difficult to reach. It is located in the far west-end of Ottawa, in the former city of Kanata, which puts it at a fair distance from some parts of the National Capital Region, especially from the east-end of Ottawa or from the Outaouais region. Difficulties are compounded by frequent traffic congestion at game time. Another problem is the isolation of the arena from many restaurants and bars, which makes it difficult for celebrations to continue naturally after the game as in many other more centrally located arenas. Kanata was a suburb of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada until it was amalgamated with Ottawa and the surrounding cities in 2001 to become the new city of Ottawa. ... The National Capital Region is an official federal designation for the Canadian capital of Ottawa, Ontario, the neighbouring city of Gatineau, Quebec and the surrounding area. ...
