TORONTO May 17 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell on Tuesday as financials retreated, while higher oil helped energy stocks edge higher even as oil producers were hit with fresh wildfire-related disruptions.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 7.39 points, or 0.05 percent, at 13,886.10, shortly after the open. Seven of the index's 10 main groups were lower. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
