How do I move to Canada?

I am a US citizen. I would like to move to Canada, where my Canadian girlfriend lives and works. My company here in the US is willing to let me telecommute. What are the legalities involved here?

I've looked on the Citizenship and Immigrations Canada website, and I haven't found any information that could apply for me. I know I'm allowed to stay in Canada for six months as a temporary resident, since I'm a US citizen, but can this be extended?
I know I can apply to change my status from a temporary resident to someone with a work permit, but can I also apply for a permanent residency from within Canada?
Would it be easier to just go the regular work permit route and find a job in Canada rather than retain the job I have now?
