The Canadian government does not treat applicants with representatives or without representatives differently. Although, in many cases it is beneficial to get legal help as applications can be overwhelming.
To get temporary residence, you would have to apply for a Temporary Resident Visa, unless you are from a visa exempt country. There are several required applications for the Temporary Resident Visa that need to be supported with the required documents. More than the application itself, there are certain things you are required to prove to get entry to Canada.
One of the most important requirements is establishing the temporary nature of your visit. It is extremely important the officer looking at your application is satisfied with your reason to come to Canada, and believes in your intention to go back.
There is no requirement to hire a lawyer or a representative, but many times the legal knowledge and expertise can make your application process go a lot more efficient. At the end of the day you are dealing with complex legal matters, and advice of legal experts may be extremely beneficial.
