TORONTO, July 17 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar touched a session low on Tuesday after data showed Canadian factory sales unexpectedly fell 0.4 percent in May from April.

The Canadian dollar weakened to C$1.0161 against the U.S. dollar, or 98.42 U.S. cents, from about C$1.0156 just before the report's release. The Canadian dollar ended Monday's North American session at C$1.0147 against the U.S. dollar, or 98.55 U.S. cents.
