TORONTO, March 31 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar firmed to a session high against the greenback on Monday after data showed the country's economy rebounded at a stronger-than-expected pace in January.

The Canadian dollar was at C$1.1008 to the greenback, or 90.84 U.S. cents, stronger than Friday's close of C$1.1060, or 90.42 U.S. cents. The loonie touched a session high of C$1.1002 shortly after the data was released. (Reporting by Leah Schnurr; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
