I changed canvas size to my desired size and then tried to use the repair tool to fill in the rest of the canvas but it's not letting me fill the areas outside of the original photo size. Any ideas?

For something like this, you'd be best off using the Clone Stamp tool — the Repair tool removes objects, here, there isn't really anything to remove. Here's a quick video on using the Clone Stamp tool: https://www.pixelmator.com/mac/tutorial ... tamp-tool/

You could then use the Repair tool on the cloned areas to smooth them up a little.
