CANADA FX DEBT-C$ hits 13-week high after data, oil rise
TORONTO, April 16 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar touched its highest level in more than 13 weeks against the U.S. dollar on Thursday, helped by rising global equities, oil price firmness and data showing a slight rebound in domestic factory sales.
The currency rose to C$1.1999 to the U.S. dollar, or 83.34 U.S. cents, its highest level since Jan. 12. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
