Thu Aug 11, 2011 9:38am EDT

 TORONTO, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market
index rose on Thursday, helped by better-than-expected results
from Manulife Financial (MFC.TO), although declining
gold-mining stocks kept the gains in check.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE rose 23.41 points to 12,222.30. Seven of the index's
10 main groups were higher, led by a 0.8 percent rally in
financials.
