TORONTO, July 12 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index notched its highest close in 11 months on Tuesday, boosted by gains in its large energy sector as oil prices surged.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 115.79 points, or 0.81 percent, at 14,477.67. That was its highest close since Aug. 5. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by James Dalgleish)
