TORONTO Aug 29 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar firmed to a session high against the greenback on Friday after data showed the domestic economy grew at a faster pace than expected in the second quarter.

The Canadian dollar was at C$1.0839 to the greenback, or 92.26 U.S. cents, stronger than Thursday's close of C$1.0847, or 92.19 U.S. cents. The loonie touched a session high of C$1.0829 shortly after the data was released. (Reporting by Leah Schnurr)
