TORONTO, March 17 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose slightly on Tuesday, lifted by a rise in oil producers, as investors anxiously awaited a U.S. Federal Reserve statement on its policy outlook.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 35.77 points, or 0.24 percent, at 14,898.53. Five of the 10 main sectors on the index were higher. (Reporting by John Tilak; Editing by Peter Galloway)
