TORONTO Jan 26 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index slipped marginally at the open on Thursday, weighed down by materials stocks as prices for gold and a string of base metals fell while energy and telecom stocks gained.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 16.29 points, or 0.10 percent, at 15,627.55 shortly after the open. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
