Dec 19 (Reuters) - Canada stock futures were slightly higher on Monday as a weaker dollar and delay of new Libyan oil exports propped up crude prices.

Investors will also look for comments from U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's speech at the University of Baltimore, less than a week after the Fed raised interest rates for only the second time since the financial crisis.

March futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.08 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index rose on Friday as higher oil prices boosted heavyweight energy stocks and gold miners recovered as the price of bullion steadied.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.13 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.09 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.09 percent.
