TORONTO Oct 20 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index ended barely higher on Thursday, as resource stocks gained despite lower commodity prices while industrial and consumer stocks weighed.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 7.75 points, or 0.05 percent, at 14,848.24. It has not closed that high since June, 2015. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by David Gregorio)
