TORONTO, July 11 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose in early trade on Monday, with broad gains helped by Japan's latest fiscal stimulus plan and as Britain's ruling Conservatives settled on a leader to take over following last month's vote to leave the European Union.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 72.78 points, or 0.51 percent, at 14,332.62. The heavyweight financial sector gained 1.1 percent. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp Editing by W Simon)
