Oct 23 - Stock futures pointed to a higher opening for Canada's main stock index on Thursday, with December futures on the S&P TSX index up 0.30 percent at 0715 ET.

No major economic events are scheduled.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index fell hard on Wednesday after a four-day winning streak, hit by news of deadly shootings in Ottawa and a sharp selloff in energy shares after oil prices tumbled.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.27 percent at 0715 ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.34 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.35 percent.
