TORONTO, April 26 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Tuesday as higher oil prices supported energy stocks, while financial sector and materials stocks also advanced, offsetting losses for railway stocks.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 28.00 points, or 0.20 percent, at 13,823.99, shortly after the open. Seven of the index's 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith Editing by W Simon)
