TORONTO May 25 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Wednesday as higher oil prices supported energy stocks, while financials also advanced despite one of the country's major banks reporting a slightly lower-than-expected quarterly profit.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 35.58 points, or 0.26 percent, at 13,988.43, shortly after the open. Eight of the index's 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
