By Adriano Marchese


Stocks in Toronto edged higher as investors await the Bank of Canada's decision on rates.

Sector performance was mixed on Tuesday. Retail led the gainers, followed by communication and tech services. On the declining side, materials and process industries led.

Canada's S&P/TSX Composite Index was 0.06% higher at 20422.92 and the blue chip S&P/TSX 60 was 0.19% higher at 1232.86.

Analysts expect the central bank to hold rates steady at its policy meeting on Wednesday, according to FactSet.

Shares of IAMGOLD were 4.7% lower at 3.25 Canadian dollars after it said it plans to buy Vanstar Mining Resources in a $31.1 million deal that will consolidate its interests in the prospective Nelligan deposit and its exploration portfolio in northern Quebec.
