June 30 (Reuters) - Futures were little changed for Canada's main stock index on Thursday as data showed Canada's economy grew by just 0.1 percent in April from March after two months of contraction.

Statistics Canada also reported that Canadian producer prices climbed more than expected in May, rising 1.1 percent from April, mainly on higher prices for energy products such as gasoline.

September futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.01 percent at 9:00 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index scored its largest gain in seven weeks on Wednesday as higher oil prices boosted shares of energy companies and investors bought back into banks after the initial shock of Britain's vote to exit the European Union.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.03 percent at 9:00 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.02 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.01 percent.
