TORONTO, March 17 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Thursday as higher crude oil prices supported energy stocks, while the materials group also advanced.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 36.44 points, or 0.27 percent, at 13,514.57, shortly after the open. Just four of the index's 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
