TORONTO, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index could get off to a higher start on Friday as firm oil, gold and base metals prices lift the resource-laden market.

But any gains could be hindered by a dip in world stocks [MKTS/GLOB] and disappointing results from BlackBerry maker Research in Motion RIM.TO RIMM.O.

On Thursday, the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE closed down 231.78 points, or 2 percent, at 11,285.76, pulled down by falling oil and metals prices, as caution returned to the market.
