TORONTO Aug 16 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell shortly after the open on Monday, pulled down by lower oil prices and far weaker-than-expected growth numbers from Japan, which added to concern about the pace of global economic recovery.

At 9:31 a.m. (1331 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 5.63 points at 11,522.62, and then fell further. It had opened up 0.91 of a point at 11,529.16. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Peter Galloway)
