Can I work and live in Vancouver?

I am a web developer with over 6 years of experience working in San Francisco. My experience is in javascript, HTML, CSS, PHP, and Ruby on Rails.

My dream is to relocate to Vancouver. I'm a US citizen.

What are my chances of finding an employer that will sponsor a work permit?

I'm also curious, if I have a work permit from an employer in Vancouver, does that prevent me from doing contract work on the side from employers in the US? I'm just wondering if moving to Vancouver on a work permit means that my only avenue of legal income is from my sponsor.

Also how difficult is it for someone in my position to live in Vancouver permanently?
