TORONTO, June 20 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar gained on Friday as domestic data showed surprisingly high inflation and robust retail sales, pushing the currency to a level last seen in the first week of 2014.

The currency was last traded at C$1.0769 to the U.S. dollar, just off its strongest levels of the session. It closed on Thursday at C$1.0823. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp Editing by W Simon)
