Feb 27 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index futures were little changed on Monday, after notching their steepest fall in over five months on Friday and as investors await U.S President Donald Trump's address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday.

Investors will keenly watch the address on Tuesday evening for clues on Trump's proposed tax reform and how he plans to overhaul the Affordable Healthcare Act.

March futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.03 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET. No major economic data is scheduled to be released.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.03 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.04 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.12 percent.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index slumped 1.57 percent on Friday as heavily-weighted energy and financial stocks led a broad-based retreat.
