June 23 (Reuters) - Stock futures pointed to a higher opening for Canada's main stock index on Thursday as the last sweep of opinion polls showed Britons favored to remain in the European Union.

September futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.83 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

No major economic events are scheduled for the day.

Canada's benchmark stock index edged slightly lower on Wednesday, with energy stocks weighing as oil fell with a smaller-than-expected U.S. inventory drawdown and gold miners rose.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.93 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.96 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were up 1 percent.
