TORONTO, March 24 (Reuters) - Canada's benchmark stock index rose for a third straight session on Tuesday as gains in shares of energy producers and financial companies helped offset sluggish economic data from China.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 124.05 points, or 0.83 percent, at 15,081.26. Nine of the 10 main sectors on the index were higher. (Reporting by John Tilak, editing by G Crosse)
