How do I work in Canada as an American citizen?

My boyfriend is currently living in New York and we are planning on moving in together. I am a Canadian citizen of British Columbia, and he is an American Citizen. We are wondering what steps we would need to take for him to be able to work here AND/OR go to school. What must we apply for so he can work AND/OR go to school here? How long of a process is it?
