TORONTO, July 31 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar firmed to a session high against the U.S. dollar on Wednesday after the U.S. Federal Reserve offered no hint of any near-term stimulus pullback in a statement after its policy meeting.

The Canadian dollar was trading at C$1.0255 versus the U.S. dollar, or 97.51 U.S. cents after the statement, stronger than just before the comments were released and Tuesday's North American session close of C$1.0302, or 97.07 U.S. cents.
