TORONTO, July 22 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index notched its highest close in more than a year on Friday, boosted by gains for telecom and utilities stocks as it recorded a fourth straight weekly gain.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 34.83 points, or 0.24 percent, at 14,600.66. It gained 0.8 percent on the week. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by James Dalgleish)
