Supporting Students. Exceptional Service. 3 Year Warranty.

Scholars Edge Painting’s mission is to provide western Canadian university and college students with an opportunity to gain real life business experience. Our Scholars operate their own painting company while earning tuition money and delivering quality painting services to our customers.


We believe in accountability and working hard to build a reputation that we are proud of. We recognize the outstanding work of our Scholars who have earned an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. We have been able to achieve and maintain this professionalism through our “Follow Through” company initiative and “We Are All Accountable” attitude. Being an entrepreneur is one of the few things someone can do whereby they are accountable for EVERYTHING. We not only teach this, we live it.


With every job we paint at Scholars Edge Painting, we will donate $10 to KidSport. We will also match donations up to $5,000. Additionally, our team of student entrepreneurs will raise pledge money and participate in a triathlon over the summer. This team event is an excellent way to foster the team’s entrepreneurial spirit. We have chosen to partner with KidSport as we believe it is an organization that aligns with our goals and values. We believe sport provides young kids an opportunity to build confidence, just as Scholars Edge helps young university students build confidence through our business ownership experience.


We take pride in every job that we do. We believe in the quality of work that we provide to our clients. As such, we confidently offer a Three Year Written Warranty against paint failures due to application. Full Workers’ Compensation Coverage is provided to cover all painters on all job sites in every province that we serve. Furthermore, we operate with $5,000,000 in Liability Insurance coverage per occurrence.

What Our Customers Say

I was extremely pleased to also see a strong emphasis placed on safety on the job site. It was apparent to me that Leisha recognized respect of the property to be an important aspect of the job and she was able to instill that in her crew as well.

Unlike the other two companies that I had consulted, Scholars Edge was familiar with the material in question and had reasonable suggestions for how we should proceed.

Dr. Jennifer Paulson, Calgary, AB

I heartily recommend Scholars Edge for painting. The quality of their work was outstanding. The preliminary work-scraping, sanding, caulking, taping- was thorough and the painting itself was excellent. Cleanup left no mess. Everything was exemplary.

Maria D'archangelo, Victoria, BC
I hired Scholars Edge Painting September 2013 to paint the exterior of my house.
There were a number of unusual problems due to the material that had previously been used on the exterior.
The job was completed to our satisfaction, on time, within budget, and no mess or damage was left behind.
