TORONTO Feb 9 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Thursday as higher oil prices supported energy shares, while Manulife Financial Corp also climbed after meeting a long-held target to achieve an annual profit of C$4 billion in 2016.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 33.86 points, or 0.22 percent, at 15,587.90, shortly after the open. Just four of the index's 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
