Toronto Stock Exchange's benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index was down 4.84 points, or 0.03 percent, to 15,383.59 points.

Metals and mining, a heavily weighted sector in TSX, tumbled 2. 25 percent as falling commodities demands from China triggered concerns. Official data showed Chinese exports increased 4.9 percent while the import fell 15 fell 17 percent in the first quarter of this year, according to the data released Monday by the General Administration of Customs on Monday.

The data released by China Railway Corp. on Monday also showed that railways transported 870 million tonnes of cargo in the first quarter of the year, down 9 percent year on year, adding to a slew of other economic indicators showing weakness in the economy.

Canada's biggest basic metals producer Teck Resources Ltd. plunged 3.76 percent to 16.65 Canadian dollars (about 13.22 U.S. dollars), and another leading company First Quantum Minerals lost 3.15 percent to 15.68 Canadian dollars.
