(Updates after inflation data)

April 17 (Reuters) - Canadian stock index futures were little changed after data showed Canada's annual inflation rate rose more than expected in March as traders get set for a long weekend.

The market is closed on Friday for the Good Friday holiday.

June futures on the S&P TSX index <0#SXF:> were up 0.05 percent at 0900 ET after being down marginally before the data.

The S&P TSX index recorded its biggest single-day jump in more than two months on Wednesday, driven higher by supportive comments on U.S. employment by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and bullish economic data from China.

Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were up 0.09 percent at 0900 ET, while S&P 500 futures were up 0.14 percent and Nasdaq 100 futures were up 0.06 percent.
