TORONTO Dec 1 (Reuters) - Toronto's resource-heavy main stock index shot higher at the open on Wednesday, lifted by strong manufacturing data from China, the world's biggest consumer of commodities.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE jumped 135.38 points, or 1.05 percent, to 13,088.26 at the open, hitting its highest level since Nov. 9. All 10 of its sectors were higher, led by gains of about 1 percent in both the energy and materials groups. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
