Finance/Accounting Jobs Outside of IB in Canada

I was wondering if anyone knew what jobs outside IB looked like in Canada. Toronto overall has less of a finance scene than NY so I had a few questions.

1- What finance related job do most people go into besides banking in Canada?

2- What's PE, HF, PWM, Financial Analysis, Corporate Finance, Corporate Development and Asset Management like in Toronto?

3- Is consulting as developed as IB in Canada? Is it mostly at the Big 4 or is there a lot of MBB presence?

4- Accounting in Canada has extremely low salaries compared to the U.S, is it the same for PWM, Corp Finance, and other non-IB finance jobs?
