CANADA FX-C$ retreats to session low after strong U.S. jobs data

TORONTO, Nov 8 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar weakened against the U.S. dollar on Friday after data showed U.S. job growth unexpectedly accelerated in October, dodging any significant impact from a U.S. government shutdown, and as Canadian employment figures came in close to expectations.

The Canadian dollar weakened to a session low of C$1.0487 to the U.S. dollar, softer than just before the data was released and weaker than Thursday’s session close at C$1.0461, or 95.59 U.S. cents.
