Feb 10 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks were set to open higher on Tuesday as March futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.65 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

No major economic events are scheduled on Tuesday.

Canada's main stock index was little changed on Monday as a gain in energy shares on climbing oil prices helped offset weak economic data from China.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.69 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET on Tuesday, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.72 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.79 percent.
