Reuters

TORONTO, Aug 8 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar fell to a session low against the greenback on Friday after data showed the country's economy added far fewer jobs than expected in July.

The Canadian dollar was at C$1.0960 to the greenback, or 91.24 U.S. cents, weaker than Thursday's close of C$1.0921, or 91.57 U.S. cents. The loonie hit a low of C$1.0965 shortly after the report was released.
