TORONTO, April 5 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Wednesday to a fresh nearly six-week high led by the heavyweight financial and energy groups as oil prices rose, while lower gold prices weighed on mining shares.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 74.73 points, or 0.48 percent, at 15,743.80, shortly after the open. Eight of the index's 10 main groups rose. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
