Please note that Health Canada does not
- advise on individual situations, including medical and health concerns;
- test municipal or private well water;
- advise on specific brands or models of water treatment devices; or
- set regulations for water quality and safety.
For medical problems, questions or concerns, contact your health care provider, e.g., family doctor or public/community health clinic.
For water quality concerns, testing and interpreting results, contact your municipal service provider or health authority.
Note that private well owners are responsible for testing and ensuring that their water is safe. Municipalities may offer low-cost or free testing for private well owners. You can find general advice on Health Canada's Be Well Aware.
For information on choosing a treatment device, please consult Health Canada's Questions and Answers page.
