Francois Desbiens, head of Quebec City's public health authority, said he has not seen any new cases of the bacterial infection since Aug. 29.
Since July, 11 people died and 176 became infected with Legionnaire's, a disease that can cause a severe pneumonia-like condition, a high fever and bloody coughing spells. The infection usually affects those who are middle-aged or older.
The government said the outbreak likely started inside poorly maintained cooling systems atop Quebec City buildings. The city's medical authority said it conducted 127 inspections of 79 buildings.
Desbiens said his report, which looked into the cause of the outbreak, won't be ready until October.
