TORONTO Nov 2 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index ended 1.2 percent lower on Wednesday in a broad retreat led by energy stocks as oil prices tumbled and heavyweight financial and materials stocks also lost ground.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 183.21 points, or 1.24 percent, at 14,595.11. It was the index's sharpest one-day loss since Sept. 13. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by James Dalgleish)
