TORONTO, June 9 (Reuters) - Canada’s benchmark stock index rose on Friday, led by financial and energy shares as oil prices rose and a stronger-than-expected domestic jobs gain added to the case for interest rate hikes from the Bank of Canada.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 50.12 points, or 0.32 percent, at 15,473.21. Just three of the index’s 10 main industry groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith, editing by G Crosse)
