TORONTO Jan 25 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell on Monday as the slide in crude oil prices weighed on energy shares and financials also suffered deep losses.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 246.42 points, or 1.99 percent, at 12,143.16. It included a 5.1 percent drop in the energy sector. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
