This. When you live in neighborhoods that are 20+ years old, you can never be too careful. Even if you live in a brand spanking new neighborhood, you don't know how long the infrastructure below you has been around for. The gas/electricity it takes to boil a kettle of water is small expense compared to what you'd be spending on drugs/medication in the case that our water happens to be contaminated.

Some of the world's cleanest drinking water

Canada had the second-best water-quality ranking among selected industrialized countries based on the Environmental Performance Index (EPI). Canada ranked ninth overall among the 157 countries assessed.
Even then, the index shows values for countries as a whole, collected from specific water monitoring facilities. It does not reflect the cleanliness of general household taps.
I'd bet, for example, that if you collected samples from random household taps in Canada, many would score lower on the index compared to samples collected from, say somewhere in Utah, despite the United States being far lower on the index.

Brita in the fridge. I like my water cold, and it gets most of the chlorine flavour out.

Just straight tap water for cooking though.

2 charcoal filters + 1 cotton filter before the water even reaches our taps.....then an extra in-fridge drinking filter.

But I dont mind drinking from the tap.....but Im not gonna go to a resto and pay for a glass of water that came from the tap.

Are those Japanese Ionized water machines actually as good as they say they are?
The best tap water I had in Canada was in Edmonton. And it wasn't from the kitchen tap. It was water from the shower faucet that I collected in a bottle and drank from.

True story.

Is this for a school project?

I use a brita filter most of the time, but sometimes I'll drink straight from the tap
