TORONTO, Aug 22 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar weakened against the U.S. dollar on Thursday, touching a six-week low after data showed Canadian retail sales fell a larger-than-expected 0.6 percent in June.

The Canadian dollar briefly touched C$1.0517 to the U.S. dollar, or 95.08 U.S. cents, after the figures were released. This was softer than immediately before the data and weaker than Wednesday's North American finish C$1.0473, or 95.48 U.S. cents.
