TORONTO, April 11 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Monday as an almost three-week high for gold helped boost mining stocks, while a major railway company advanced after it scrapped a takeover bid.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 26.03 points, or 0.19 percent, at 13,422.76. Just three of the index's 10 main groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Chris Reese)
