TORONTO Nov 22 (Reuters) - Canada's benchmark stock index rose to a fresh 17-month high on Tuesday as base metal mining and financial shares rose, offsetting some profit-taking in energy shares ahead of a meeting next week of major oil producers.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 60.51 points, or 0.40 percent, at 15,100.38. Seven of the index's 10 main industry groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith, editing by G Crosse)
