April 11 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a higher opening for Canada's main stock index on Monday ahead of the much-awaited corporate earnings season.

June futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.61 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

No major economic releases are expected for the day.

Canada's main stock index jumped almost 1 percent on Friday, led by gains in energy companies as crude oil prices surged, helping the index eclipse most of the losses sustained earlier in the week.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.38 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.40 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 0.43 percent.
