OTTAWA Jan 26 (Reuters) - Canada will lift its sanctions on Iran now that an international deal has been reached to curb Tehran's nuclear program, Foreign Minister Stephane Dion said on Tuesday, but gave no details.

Ending the sanctions would allow Canadian firms like plane maker Bombardier Inc to bid for Iranian contracts.
