Todd Labelle works at Avison Young. He is a commercial real estate agent, and has worked in the industry for the last eight years. The last four years have been dedicated to commercial real estate. He enjoys working in real estate because it gives him the opportunity to be creative in finding solutions for his clients.

Beyond the MFBC, Todd is a member of BNI Trailblazers. Him and his wife are also producers. When his wife moved here from the Philippines, he realized there was a shortage of activities to do that could help with her homesickness. Therefore, he recently arranged a successful show called 4 DA LAFFS starring Pokwang, K Brosas, Chokoleit and Pooh.

Why did Todd join the MFBC? “I joined the MFBC to connect with the Filipino community. It is very strong and growing and I wanted to be able to be part of it. There are so many great businesses out there and more coming. I want to help entrepreneurs looking to cater to the Filipino community.”
