TORONTO Jan 26 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Tuesday as shares in energy companies and banks were helped higher by a recovery in the price of oil to above $31 a barrel, while a break higher in the price of gold helped lift mining stocks.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 188.16 points, or 1.55 percent, at 12,331.32. It included a 4.0 percent gain for the energy group. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Lisa Shumaker)
