Canadian dollar falls after Canada's jobs data *PIC*

Canadian dollar falls after Canada's jobs data (C_CAD, $DXY) (by Deborah Levine)

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- The Canadian dollar turned down on Friday after the Canadian economy added 22,000 jobs last month, the government said. That's stronger than the 15,000 growth seen in November. It also beat analysts' estimates, according to Brown Brothers Harriman. Full-time employment rose by 38,000, though increases in the private sector were partially offset by declines in self-employment, Statistics Canada said. The unemployment rate held steady at 7.6%. One U.S. dollar (C_CAD) bought 99.32 Canadian cents, down 0.3%, after being higher earlier.
