TORONTO, March 21 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Monday, led by heavyweight financial sector stocks, while healthcare also advanced after a leading drugmaker said its chief executive officer would step down.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 57.40 points, or 0.43 percent, at 13,554.47, shortly after the open. Eight of the index's 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith Editing by W Simon)
