Canadian Water & Lead
The only way to know whether your tap water contains lead is to have it tested. You cannot see, taste, or smell lead in drinking water. Therefore, you must ask your water provider whether your water has lead in it.

Heating or boiling your water will not remove lead. Because some of the water evaporates during the boiling process, the lead concentration of the water can actually increase slightly as the water is boiled. ... Avoid cooking with or drinking hot tap water because hot water dissolves lead more readily than cold water does.



Reporters also found that children in thousands of schools and daycares across Canada are likely being exposed to dangerous levels of lead in their drinking water and don’t know it, according to  provincial studies and internal briefing materials obtained under freedom of information legislation.

You can find effective and affordable water filters specifically designed to remove lead. In general, carbon-based faucet-mount filters are good bets. ... Cold water generally contains less lead than warm or hot tap water. Boiling water does not remove lead. 

So start using a good filtration system or a reputable bottle source.
