CANADA FX-C$ falls to session low after U.S. jobs report

 TORONTO, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Canada's dollar slid to a
session low against the U.S. currency after a much
weaker-than-expected U.S. nonfarm payrolls report for
November.
 The Canadian dollar CAD=D4 immediately dropped to
C$1.0055 to the U.S. dollar, or 99.45 U.S. cents, after nonfarm
payrolls rose 39,000, far less than the 140,000 gain expected.

 The currency was below Thursday's North American session
close at C$1.0039 to the U.S. dollar, or 99.61 U.S. cents.
 It was already retreating from near-parity levels earlier
after Canadian data showed the domestic economy gave a mixed
performance in November as fewer than expected jobs were
created. [ID:nN03271210] ECONCA
