April 13 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a slightly lower opening for Canada's main stock index on Monday ahead of busy week of corporate results.

No major economic events are scheduled.

Canada's main stock index finished broadly higher on Friday, for a seventh straight day of gains, buoyed in part by resource stocks that benefited from higher commodity prices.
