Default UK Citizen staying in Canada - Advice needed

A little advice needed off you good people please if possible..

My fiancee lives in Ont Canada, I flew out here a month ago with a return fight ticket and am due to return to the UK next week. Here's the issue, I now have the opportunity to stay for longer, And from what i have read, i am eligible to stay for up to 6months without a Visa, is this correct?

After speaking to my flight company, it seems that changing the return flight date isn't too costly and can be done easily even just 24hours before, so I am planning on stopping.

Do i need to inform immigration that i am changing the planned length of stay from 1 month to a possible 6?

Is there anything i need to aware of by doing this, anything at all?

It seems a little too easy and i'm just suspicious that there may be something else thats all?

Any help would be very much appreciated so I can start making the necessary arrangements ASAP. Thanks in advance!

If on arrival CBSA just stamped your passport and gave you no other documentation then you are free to stay for the 6 months. The stamp confers the 6 month stay validity.
