TORONTO, Sept 13 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell at the open on Tuesday, weighed down by energy stocks as oil prices fell on a pessimistic outlook for global demand from the International Energy Agency.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 96.42 points, or 0.66 percent, at 14,500.72 shortly after the open. Heavyweight financial and material stocks also lost ground. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp)
