Canadian dollar hits session high after housing data

TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar firmed to a session high against the greenback on Tuesday after data showed housing starts rose more than expected in September.

The Canadian dollar was at C$1.0310, or 96.99 U.S. cents, stronger than Monday's close of C$1.0313, or 96.96 U.S. cents. The Canadian currency hit a session high of C$1.0308 shortly after the data was released.
