TORONTO Feb 6 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened higher on Friday as strong U.S. jobs data boosted investor sentiment and higher oil prices lifted shares of energy producers.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 39.24 points, or 0.26 percent, at 15,164.16 shortly after the open. (Reporting by John Tilak; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
