That would be helpful for Canada's economy as a major producer of commodities, including oil.

The currency traded in a range of 1.3245 to 1.3312.

Gains for the loonie come after Canadian data on Friday showed bumper jobs numbers in January that exceeded market expectations and highlighted the strength of the economy. loonie has advanced 2.9 percent since the start of 2019, the best performance among G10 currencies.

Canadian government bond prices were lower across a steeper yield curve in sympathy with U.S. Treasuries. The two-year CA2YT=RR fell 2.5 Canadian cents to yield 1.802 percent and the 10-year CA10YT=RR declined 15 Canadian cents to yield 1.921 percent.
