CANADA FX-C$ hits session high after strong Canadian jobs data

TORONTO, Jan 4 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar strengthened to a session high against its U.S. counterpart on Friday after Canada added a surprisingly robust 39,800 jobs in December.

At 8:33 a.m. (1333 GMT) the Canadian dollar was trading at C$0.9876 to the greenback, or $1.0126, compared with C$0.9880, or $1.0121, at Thursday's North American close. It was at C$0.9910 just before the jobs data was released.
