The Canadian dollar appreciated against its major counterparts in the European session on Tuesday, as the nation's annual consumer inflation accelerated more than expected in August.

Economists had expected a 3.8 percent increase.

On a seasonally adjusted monthly basis, the CPI rose 0.6 percent, unchanged from the previous month.

Core CPI, excluding food and energy, eased to 0.3 percent from 0.4 percent last month.

The loonie strengthened to a 1-year high of 110.44 against the yen and more than a 3-month high of 1.4303 against the euro, off its early lows of 109.37 and 1.4423, respectively.

The loonie climbed to multi-week highs of 1.3378 against the greenback and 0.8648 against the aussie, from its early lows of 1.3489 and 0.8691, respectively.
