TORONTO, March 24 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Friday, led by financial and energy shares as oil prices gained and after TransCanada Corp said the U.S. Department of State issued a presidential permit for the construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 50.41 points, or 0.33 percent, at 15,484.02, shortly after the open. Seven of the index's 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
