TORONTO, July 12 (Reuters) - Canadian home prices rose in June from May as a seasonal uptick in sales pushed prices to an all-time high, but the annual price increase was the smallest in more than three years, the Teranet-National Bank Composite House Price Index showed on Friday.

The index, which measures price changes for repeat sales of single-family homes, showed overall prices rose 1.0 percent in June from a month earlier and were up in every major Canadian city.

But the index was up just 1.8 percent from a year earlier, marking the smallest 12-month gain since November 2009.
