TORONTO, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose in early trade on Thursday as energy stocks gained with higher crude prices after Russia's energy minister said the country is ready to coordinate its actions in the global oil market.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 93.90 points, or 0.64 percent, at 14,804.72 shortly after the open. All 10 main sectors rose, with energy up 1.8 percent. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
