TORONTO, March 5 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock exchange opened broadly higher on Thursday, helped in part by gains in the materials sector and forecast-beating results from Canadian Natural Resources, the country's No. 2 oil and gas producer.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 43.64 points, or 0.3 percent, at 15126.48. All of the index's main groups except for financials climbed. (Reporting by Solarina Ho; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
