Question Work permit in the US for Candian citizens?

Excuse me if I appear lost here - this is just out of curiosity - what rules do apply for Canadian Permanent Residents and/or citizens regarding getting a work permit in the United States?

btw I tried looking for a FAQ for this group but didn't find any.

Nothing for PRs of Canada, your citizenship is still what counts; and then Canadian citizens are eligible for Nafta TN visas - but that would help only very specific professions for a limited time (renewable yearly but not indefinitely), your spouse cannot work, you're supposed to keep ties like house in Canada and not swap to immigrant visa.
