Options for international MBA grad in Canada with low hours and high compensation


I am an incoming MBA candidate at Rotman. I have a total of 44 months of work experience. Most recently, I have worked in a reference data firm out of India's office for a little over 2.5 years. Think: Bloomberg, Refinitiv, IHS Markit etc. There was research work involved but the scope was very minute. I have worked in the audit/tax division of a big 4 for an year earlier. My undergrad GPA was 3.5 and I scored 740 in GMAT. I have also cleared CFA Level 2. Post my MBA, I would want to work in a role that pays over 100k per annum but at the same time would not want to work over 45 - 50 hours per week. Could anyone who is currently working in Toronto please share inputs on this?

What are my options? What should I aim for? 

Any other suggestions?
