TORONTO (Reuters) - Canadian consumer confidence fell in October, the fifth decline in the last six months, the Conference Board of Canada said in a report on Wednesday that added to a gloomier outlook for Canada's economy.

After a marginal increase last month, the Conference Board of Canada's Index of Consumer Confidence reversed course and declined 3.3 points to 71.8 in October, leaving the index at its lowest level since May 2009.
