(Updates to add Canadian economic data)

Sept 30 - Stock futures indicated a lower open after Statistics Canada data indicated that the economy did not expand in July, breaking a six month streak of gains.

December futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.07 percent at 9:05 a.m. ET.

Statistics Canada said real gross domestic product was unchanged in July from June.

Producer prices increased by 0.2 percent in August over July as the weak Canadian dollar boosted prices for motorized and recreational vehicles, Statscan said.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index dropped on Monday, extending the previous week's slide as worries about democracy protests in Hong Kong drove market volatility, pulling down shares of financial and mining companies.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.16 percent at 9:05 a.m. ET, S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.19 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.38 percent.
