Title says it all. He hasn't filed 2014-2016 (but paid 2017)

He doesn't have a big business... just a one man consulting gig editing videos.

Canadian Revenue Agency called him and he owes between CAD$4.5k-6k.

I'm trying to help him out with advice, but I'm in the USA and have no experience with this situation (knock on wood!).

Any recommendations? Is it possible to work with them to negotiate it down in exchange for faster payment? Should he call someone specific (lawyer, accountant, etc)?

Tell him to give them a call, they can work something out. He'll have to pay them what he owes, but taxes in Canada are generally pretty chill.

For future reference, he should get an accountant if he's making bank and needs to pay tax.
