TORONTO Feb 23 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Tuesday, helped by gains for gold stocks and for one of its largest banks after reporting earnings, while energy stocks dragged as crude oil prices fell.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 52.18 points, or 0.41 percent, at 12,897.81, shortly after the open. Nine of the index's 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
