Canada's main stock index rose steadily on Monday, as gains in oil prices drove energy shares higher, with trading volumes reduced by a U.S. market holiday.

The Canadian dollar gained 0.43 cents to 79.01 cents U.S.

Among consumer discretionary stocks, Canada Goose Holdings hiked 76 cents, or 2.9%, to $26.71, while BRP Inc. advanced $2.65, or 2.7%, to $102.55.
Utilities weighed on the market, though, as Boralex sagged $1.21, or 3%, to $39.56, while Innergex Renewable gave back 34 cents, or 1.9%, to $17.17.

Oil prices towered 99 cents to $116.06 U.S. a barrel.
