June 14 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a lower opening for Canada's main stock index on Tuesday, as oil prices fell more than 1 percent following investor concerns over next week's vote on Britain's future in the European Union.

June futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.22 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

No major economic events are scheduled for the day.

Canada's main stock index fell for the fourth straight day on Monday, hitting a nearly three-week low as global jitters about whether Britain will vote to leave the European Union weighed, but losses were restrained by gains in resource stocks.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.19 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.23 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.30 percent.
