Patrice Lauzon was born in Montreal, Quebec to Cecile and Norman Lauzon. He married Marie-France Dubreuil in August 2008. On December 24, 2010, Dubreuil gave birth to their first child, a daughter named Billie-Rose.
In 1995, Lauzon teamed up with Marie-France Dubreuil and they placed 6th at their first Canadian Championships. They took the silver medal in their first appearance at Four Continents in 2000. Their coaches, Sylvie Fullum and Francois Vallee, having retired after the 2001–2002 season, Dubreuil/Lauzon decided to move permanently to Lyon, France to train with Muriel Boucher-Zazoui.
Dubreuil/Lauzon captured the gold medal at the Canadian National Championships five times and competed at the Winter Olympics twice. They were forced to withdraw from the 2006 Winter Olympics after Dubreuil suffered an injury. They recovered to win the silver medal at the 2006 World Championships in Calgary, Alberta.
Dubreuil/Lauzon began the 2006–07 season with gold medals at 2006 Skate Canada International and 2006 NHK Trophy, which qualified them for the Grand Prix Final. At the World Championships in Tokyo, they took their second consecutive World silver medal.
Dubreuil/Lauzon skated in ice shows during the 2007-2008 season. They confirmed their retirement from competitive skating on May 20, 2008. They began coaching ice dancing at the Gadbois Centre in Montreal. Their students include:
