TORONTO, July 30 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index ended higher on Thursday, helped by a jump in shares of Open Text Corp after it upped its operating margin outlook, and a second day of gains for energy stocks that had recently slumped to six-year lows.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 80.98 points, or 0.57 percent, at 14,382.78. Eight of the 10 main groups on the index rose.
