TORONTO Feb 13 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose to its highest in almost five months on Friday as robust oil prices helped boost the energy sector, offsetting a decline in TransCanada Corp after the pipeline company reported quarterly results.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 36.29 points, or 0.24 percent, at 15,264.81. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index were higher. (Reporting by John Tilak; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
