TORONTO Oct 1 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose 1 percent to its highest in more than a week on Monday, as investors started the new quarter hoping for aggressive action from central banks after economic data from Asia and Europe showed further signs of slowing global growth.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index rose 122.71 points, or 1 percent, to 12,440.17.
