The ENMAX Centrium is a two-tier 6,706-seat multi-purpose arena in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. It was built in 1991 and is the home arena of the Red Deer Rebels hockey team. The arena can hold a maximum of 6,828 people when floor seating is used. "Half house" seating is 3,357 when floor to ceiling divider curtains are used to mask off unused seating.

Located in Westerner Park in the south end of Red Deer, the Centrium is the largest indoor venue in Red Deer and Central Alberta. Besides hockey, it also hosts concerts, basketball, motor sports, ice shows, major curling events, circuses, boxing, rodeos, professional wrestling, trade shows and conventions.

Various notable artists have performed here, including Snoop Dogg, Mötley Crüe, Nickelback, Hilary Duff, Elton John, Bryan Adams, Billy Talent, and Rush.

The arena is currently named for ENMAX Consolidated, a utility services company which purchased the naming rights.

It was the primary site for the 1995 World Junior Hockey Championship, the 2004 and 2012 Scotties Tournament of Hearts and Game 7 of the 2007 Super Series
