TORONTO, June 10 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar firmed to a session-high of C$1.0181 to the U.S. dollar in early trade on Monday after stronger-than-expected housing data.

The data showed more than 200,000 housing starts in May, beating both last month's figure and a Reuters poll of expectations by more than 20,000.
