Girlfriend: Florence Dubemoreau

Laurent Tardif is currently in a relationship with Florence Dubemoreau. Tardif did not speak much English and was not fluent at all before. So he had to take various classes on English, spending less time on the field and more on learning English in restaurants that provided English lectures. That's where he met his girlfriend.

Duvernay-Tardif said that he spent much of his time away from football at a restaurant that streamed school lectures and “cross-referencing them with a French-English dictionary. He said:

"I was lucky to have the help of a really pretty waitress named Florence, who not only spoke English but who would also eventually become my girlfriend.”

His girlfriend Florence is a graduate with a master's degree in art history from UQAM. She is also an author and independent art commissioner. She manages exhibitions in Montreal, Quebec, and Toronto.
