May 16 (Reuters) - Futures of Canada's main stock index were slightly higher on Tuesday as oil extended gains and commodity prices rose.

June futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.07 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

No economic data is scheduled for the day.

Canada's main stock index rallied on Monday, powered in part by Royal Bank of Canada, which helped the heavily weighted financial stocks, and energy gains fueled by a jump in oil prices.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.16 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.07 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.11 percent.
