TORONTO, March 31 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Thursday as commodity-related stocks and financials advanced, while data showed the domestic economy expanded more than expected in January.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 17.50 points, or 0.13 percent, at 13,521.48, shortly after the open. Just four of the index's 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
