TORONTO Oct 27 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened higher on Thursday, as a rebound in oil prices boosted energy stocks and Suncor Energy Inc, the country's largest oil and gas producer, jumped after a surprisingly strong profit.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 59.78 points, or 0.40 percent, at 14,867.34 shortly after the open. Six of its 10 main groups were higher, with energy up 1.8 percent. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
