Sheer number of Accounting jobs

I was just perusing accounting jobs on indeed. 290 new jobs listed in Toronto. Seems like a lot of jobs. I know they don't exactly pay a lot but I'm surprised by the amount. Is there a shortage of qualified candidates?

It depends on who you ask. Its just that there are tens of thousand of accountants applying.

There's a lot turnover. Lots of people leave for higher pay just because of how crap the pay is given the experience.

There are actually way more accounting graduates than applicable jobs in my experience, there is an indeed feature that lets you see how many people applied on indeed alone and I have seen 300 - 450 people apply to some of those roles where expected pay is minimum wage - $15 per hour.

Its a good field though with plenty of opportunities available especially to those who have their designation and good experience.

Define "accounting". Are we talking about AR/AP Clerks, Tax Preppers, Public Accountants etc...
