TORONTO Dec 12 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose to a fresh 19-month high on Monday, led by a jump in energy stocks after the world's top crude producers agreed to the first joint output cut since 2001.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was unofficially up 39.19 points, or 0.26 percent, at 15,351.39. It touched its highest since May 2015 at 15,357.67. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
