TORONTO Jan 13 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Wednesday on strength in energy shares as positive Chinese data supported sentiment and crude oil prices rallied.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 88.68 points, or 0.72 percent, at 12,462.58, shortly after the open. The index closed higher on Tuesday, breaking a nine-session slump. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)
