coast to coast

Hello everybody,
I'm planning to ride my bike through canada from the east coast to the west (montreal - vancouver), i saw there is a route that cross it and it's bike friendly.
I plan to camp with a tent, in order to spare money as much as possible, is that free camping prohibited there? If so, what is the average price for a night in a camping site?
Moreover, is there free running water along this route?
I'm trying to calculate the approximate cost of this trip, would you try to help me?
