TORONTO, March 28 (Reuters) - Canada's benchmark stock index rose on Monday in light volume as the strengthening in financial and consumer names offset losses for commodity-related stocks.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 32.08 points, or 0.24 percent, at 13,390.19. Five of the index's 10 main groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith, editing by G Crosse)
