Recently a dead whale was recovered near Montreal. It appears that a ship had collided with it and pushed it all the way upstream.

AFAIK, no whale left to its own devices gets as far downstream as this. I don't even know if they come any farther than Quebec City.

For one thing, upstream from the Fjord du Saguenay, the water gets much, much shallower and warmer, which they may not care for. As it happens, the cold, deep water at the confluence of the Saguenay and St. Lawrence make Tadoussac a famous whale-watching site.
