Let's say I open a new blank canvas.
I then decide to make the canvas larger (Image > Canvas Size).
The canvas is made larger.
However, I am unable to draw over the new area unless I create a new layer and then merge the two.

This seems a bit counter productive. Is there a way / a plugin to make it so that, when I adjust the canvas size, the layer adjusts with it?

I don't think so. However there is a more intuitive workaround.

After adjusting the canvas:
  From the top menu: Layer>Layer to Image Size

This method uses 2 clicks instead of 4 or 5 :)
