TORONTO May 25 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index hit a three-week high on Wednesday, bolstered by its resource sectors, as rising commodity prices more than offset lingering economic uncertainties.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE climbed 138.95 points, or 1.02 percent, to 13,734.07, its highest since May 3.

Eight of the index 10 main groups were higher, reversing earlier losses, with weighty energy and materials leading the way. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
