TORONTO Jan 11 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index barely rose early on Wednesday, as higher oil prices helped boost energy stocks while gold miners and other materials stocks weighed and investors awaited a news conference from U.S. President-elect Donald Trump.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 9.25 points, or 0.06 percent, at 15,435.53 shortly after the open. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
