How long a stay ? Main interests ? Will you have a car ? Interested in seeing the city only, or would like to explore around (nature, landscape, etc) ?
I would advise you to come at the end of September, if you are interested to see the spectacular change in the tree foliage, best seen a bit outside the town (a 10 miles drive, preferably on the south shore of the river, would allow you to see much more than in the city itself). Usually, the best time for it is the last week of September, and the 1st week in October. It could start earlier, it will finish later than that, but these 2 weeks are normally interesting in this aspect.
In early October, when there are not much colorful leaves left in the trees and when the weather is becoming ... quite cooler, we see more than 150,000 migrating snowy geese, stopping in Cap Tourmente (north shore of the river, very close to the city itself) on their way to the south for winter. Unfortunately, it is quite hard to predict exactly when they are going to come ,,,
September sees a slight decrease in the number of tourists, and October is really quiet. Forget November, it is dreary. Cold, humid, grey, depressing.

Any other time is great but this is heaven.
I agree about the best season that is the last week of September, and the 1st week in October. I came during this season many times. I always rent the same furnished flat and enjoy my holiday. If you want the email adress i will send it to you. I usually pay 315 canadian dollars for a week for a very nice two bedrooms apartment. It is 45 dollars a night !!! And there is a sauna and an exercise room in the complex.
Hope you will enjoy your holiday in Quebec.
