TORONTO, March 22 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell in early trade on Tuesday after deadly blasts in Brussels dampened investor sentiment and prompted a flight towards safe-haven assets such as gold, helping boost shares of gold miners.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 49.27 points, or 0.36 percent, at 13,511.82 shortly after the open. Eight of its 10 main sectors were lower. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
