(Reuters) - Canada's main stock index treaded water on Friday as gains in the technology sector were offset by losses in shares of energy companies.
* Only four of the index's 11 major sectors were higher, led by the information technology sector's .SPTTTK 0.7 percent rise.
* At 10:11 a.m. ET (14:11 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 6.3 points, or 0.04 percent, at 15,995.41.
* Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he wanted a good NAFTA deal as soon as possible, but did not answer directly when asked if he agreed with Washington that the end of September was the final deadline for talks.

On the TSX, 107 issues were higher, while 128 issues declined for a 1.20-to-1 ratio to the downside, with 33.11 million shares traded.
