TORONTO Jan 11 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell more than 1 percent on Monday, pummeled by sharp losses for its energy and materials sectors after a slide in oil prices and fresh lows for base metals.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 126.20 points, or 1.01 percent, at 12,319.25. Seven of its 10 main sectors fell, with energy stocks off 4 percent. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp, editing by G Crosse)
