Canada has recouped all the jobs lost in the recession, and employment stands 176,600 higher than in August 2011, with most of the increases in full-time positions.   By comparison, US jobs growth slowed sharply in August, with nonfarm payrolls up only 96,000, well below what would normally be needed to put a dent in the jobless rate and setting the stage for the Fed to pump additional money into the sluggish economy when it meets later this week.   At 8:20 a.m. (1220 GMT), the Canadian dollar stood at C$0.9770 against the greenback, or $1.0235, slightly firmer than Friday's North American session ...

C$ soars to strongest level since Sept. 2011  TORONTO: The Canadian dollar touched its strongest level in nearly a year on Friday after Canadian employment data showed the economy added a higher-than-expected 34,300 jobs in August.

Draghi gave few new details on the program, however, initially disappointing investors ...
C$ rallies on US labor news, ECB move  TORONTO: The Canadian dollar advanced against its US counterpart on Friday morning, buoyed by some rare positive data from the struggling US labor market and gaining tepid support from European Central Bank's much-anticipated move to launch a bond-buying program to try to draw a line under the region's debt crisis.
