TORONTO, March 23 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Thursday, led by heavyweight financial sector shares a day after the federal budget held off from raising taxes on investors.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 85.15 points, or 0.55 percent, at 15,433.61. Nine of the index's 10 main groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Leslie Adler)
