TORONTO, March 17 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index jumped 1 percent on Thursday in a broad rally boosted by energy stocks as oil surged to a 2016 high, with heavyweight banks also helping.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 143.17 points, or 1.06 percent, at 13,621.30. It touched its best level since Nov. 4 during the session. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp)
