TORONTO Feb 19 (Reuters) - Canada's benchmark stock index fell on Friday, including drops in healthcare, energy and financial sector stocks, as crude oil prices tumbled and domestic retail sales disappointed.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 117.96 points, or 0.91 percent, at 12,813.40. Eight of the index's 10 main groups ended lower. (Reporting by Fergal Smith, editing by G Crosse)
