TORONTO Nov 22 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar firmed against the U.S. currency on Tuesday after data showed Canadian consumers spent more than expected on retail purchases in September.

The currency CAD=D4 briefly firmed to C$1.0365 against the greenback, or 96.48 U.S. cents, up from C$1.0392 just before the report and Monday's close at C$1.0378.
