TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index ended barely higher on Friday, helped by gains among energy stocks despite a dip in oil prices and surges in shares of BlackBerry (BB.TO: Quote) and Bombardier Inc (BBDb.TO: Quote).

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 14.11 points, or 0.11 percent, at 13,024.04. It gained 1.8 percent on the week, after notching its lowest close in more than two years last Friday.
