TORONTO May 6 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Friday as gold stocks rallied on expectations the U.S. Federal Reserve will delay further interest rate increases, while energy stocks also gained after oil turned higher.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 69.46 points, or 0.51 percent, at 13,701.47. Seven of the index's 10 main groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Sandra Maler)
