The cheapest drinking water in Canadian provinces and territories comes in at a paltry $1 per litres.

The cost of a litre of water varies based on the province, but most of it comes in the form of levies and other levies imposed on consumers by the province.

This is not the first time a Canadian company has come under fire for low-cost water.

In 2013, the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) was criticized for its low-ball pricing of a small portion of its water.

The company, which is owned by the same family that owns Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) said it had been forced to raise its prices to pay for repairs after it was hit by a series of high-profile accidents.
