TORONTO Nov 10 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index dipped on Thursday as lower commodity prices weighed on gold mining and energy stocks, while higher bond yields weighed on defensive sectors, such as utilities, telecoms and consumer staples.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 15.73 points, or 0.11 percent, at 14,744.18. Seven of the index's 10 main groups ended lower. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by James Dalgleish)
