TORONTO, July 12 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index jumped to its highest level in eleven months in early trade on Tuesday, boosted by shares of energy companies as the price of oil bounced off a two-month low.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 108.87 points, or 0.76 percent, at 14,470.75 shortly after the open, its strongest level since August 10. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
