Dec 22 (Reuters) - Canadian stock futures were little changed on Thursday ahead of a raft of economic data, including an inflation report for November.

March futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.01 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Other data on tap includes a retail sales report, which is also due at 8:30 a.m. ET.

The main stock index ended slightly higher on Wednesday pushed by industrial stocks including SNC-Lavalin Group Inc , which jumped after winning an oil sands service contract.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.05 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.09 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.09 percent.
