June 27 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a lower start for Canada's main stock index on Monday as oil prices dropped after Britain's vote to leave the EU sparked a sharp selloff in global markets.

September futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.97 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

No major economic events are scheduled for the day.

Canada's main stock index fell on Friday, the most in four months, as financial and energy stocks slid after Britain voted to leave the bloc, while the resulting market turmoil boosted gold miners as demand for the precious metal surged.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.63 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.61 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.76 percent.
