TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar weakened to a session low on Friday following the release of domestic housing starts data that was much weaker than expected.

The Canadian dollar weakened to C$1.0008 against the U.S. dollar, or $0.9992. It had ended the North American session Thursday at C$0.9980 against the greenback, or $1.0020.
