The map was created by Bonjour Québec, the official tourism website of the Quebec government.
It follows a colour code that varies from green to grey.
The legend explains:
Green: The leaves haven't started changing colour yet
Yellow: The leaves are beginning to change colour
Orange: The leaves are at a mid-point between starting to change colour and reaching their peak
Red: The leaves are nearly at peak
Brown: The leaves are past their peak
Grey: The season is over
You can also filter the map by national parks, wildlife reserves, trails, routes and other ways you might want to take in the scenery.
Right now, most leaves around Montreal are in the green zone. But going north toward the Laurentians, you'll find leaves in the yellow zone — beginning to change colour — around Sainte-Adèle as well as leaves in the orange zone — at their mid-point — around Mont-Tremblant.
The tool is updated every Thursday, so it was last updated on September 16 and will be updated again on September 23.
Fall Foliage Map Of Quebec
Make the most of autumn in Quebec by tracking down the fall foliage when it's at its peak.
Why You Need To Go: This park has it all from a vast network of trails to a river and suspended bridge. Plus, this park brings you closer to Mont Ouareau, which you can climb for some of the most panoramic views you've ever seen.
Bonjour Québec's handy map of fall foliage shows us exactly when different Quebec regions have the most colourful fall foliage — ranked from "beginning soon" to "near peak" to "end." You can use this map to plan a picturesque fall road trip or hike.
According to the map's latest update on October 7, the following sites in these Quebec regions currently have fall foliage that's either nearing its peak or already peaking:

Keep an eye on the map because it will be updated again on October 14 and a number of spots near Montreal are currently at their "mid-point," just one level down from nearing their peak.
It's time to start planning those leaf-peeping adventures because it appears fall foliage is arriving a bit early and we're just weeks away from the bare-tree greyness of the long winter season. At the top of our fall hikes list is Quebec's Mont-Orford.
The Estrie mountain, situated in a Quebec national park of the same name, features eight hiking trails, each offering an immersive adventure in the brilliant, fiery colours of the fall foliage.
From the park's multiple peaks, hikers can take in the great blanket of bright reds, oranges and yellows that covers the region's hills and valleys in the fall.
But you don't have to work too hard to yield some big rewards.
Sépaq describes the shortest and easiest hike, the 3.5-kilometre Étang-Fer-de-Lance, as "a pleasant walk in a maple forest [leading] to a superb panoramic view."
Those looking for a bit more difficulty might try the Mont-Chauve hike, a 10.6-kilometre intermediate-level loop that crosses the peak's summit.
