TORONTO, June 5 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar strengthened slightly against its U.S. counterpart on Tuesday after the Bank of Canada held its key interest rate at 1 percent, but signaled it may have to raise it later.

The Canadian currency firmed to C$1.0383 against the U.S. dollar, or 96.31 U.S. cents, shortly after the announcement, up slightly from Monday's close at C$1.0397, versus the greenback, or 96.18 U.S. cents.
