May 16 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index ended higher for a second straight day on Thursday as investors cheered corporate earnings, including from Canada Goose, and recent signs of cooler inflation in the United States that could open the door to interest rate cuts.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index ended up 15.07 points, or 0.1%, at 22,299.83, edging closer to the record closing high it posted last Thursday at 22,375.83.

"The markets are consolidating to grinding higher on some macro news and solid earnings," said Ian Chong, a portfolio manager at First Avenue Investment Counsel Inc.

Canada Goose Holdings Inc shares surged 15.5%, as the luxury apparel group beat Wall Street estimates for fourth-quarter results, riding on a recovery in North America and steady demand in China for its pricey puffer jackets.

Lightspeed Commerce Inc was also a standout. Its shares gained 18.3% as the cloud commerce solution provider beat first-quarter revenue estimates.

Upcoming earnings reports from Canada's big banks, set to begin on May 23, could be the next catalyst for the market, Chong said.

Heavily-weighted financials added 0.1% and utilities was up 0.4%, adding to its strong gains the day before when U.S. consumer price index data showed prices climbing less than expected in April, increasing bets among traders that the U.S. Federal Reserve will cut rates in September.

The materials sector, which includes precious and base metals miners and fertilizer companies, was a drag, falling 0.2%, as gold and copper prices fell.

Energy ended nearly unchanged as oil settled 0.8% higher at $79.23 a barrel.

Overnight rain helped firefighters stall a large wildfire near the Canadian oil sands city of Fort McMurray, Alberta and wet weather on Thursday was expected to further aid containment efforts, local officials said.
