TORONTO, Aug 5 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose in early trade on Friday, led by banks and railway stocks after a bumper U.S. jobs report boosted oil prices and overshadowed dismal Canadian trade and jobs data.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 60.38 points, or 0.42 percent, at 14,589.16 shortly after the open. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp Editing by W Simon)
