TORONTO Jan 22 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market index slid to its lowest point in six weeks on Friday, roughed up by falling oil prices and by financial shares that were still reeling from the White House plan to impose tighter restrictions on banks.

Gold, however, bounced from a one-month low, helping gold producers rise and chip into the heavy decline.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 143.84 points, or 1.25 percent, at 11,325.26. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
