They moved their training base from Michigan to Montreal, where they train with two-time ice dance world champions Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron of France. The Canadian couple went undefeated in their 2016-17 comeback season. Virtue and Moir won a Challenger Series competition in Montreal, followed by two golds on the Grand Prix circuit, which vaulted them into the exclusive Grand Prix Final, which they also won. They won their seventh Canadian national title and were selected to continue their season at the Four Continents Championships and the 2017 World Championships. They won at Four Continents, which was held at the same venue that will host Olympic figure skating in 2018, and picked up their third world title. During their comeback season, Virtue and Moir also notched the highest scores ever recorded in the short dance and total overall score.
They traded those high scores throughout the Olympic season with Papadakis and Cizeron. Virtue and Moir started their 2018 Olympic season with a win at the Autumn Classic. Then, they won both of their Grand Prix assignments in Canada and Japan. They fell to second behind the French at the Grand Prix Final and in January, won another Canadian national title.
