TORONTO Dec 15 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index slipped at the open on Thursday, weighed down by losses among gold miners while financial stocks broadly gained after the U.S. Federal Reserve on Wednesday hiked rates and struck a hawkish note on further increases.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 17.05 points, or 0.11 percent, at 15,180.13. It had its sharpest fall in a month in the prior session. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
