As a practicing immigration attorney, my perspective is that you don’t need a lawyer in order to submit your Permanent Residency application, nor is it required by the Government of Canada, although it can help. 


If you have a more complicated case or are in a situation where you feel your application is at risk of being denied, it is probably worth at least consulting with a lawyer, but IRCC has made it possible for individuals to navigate the entire process without one.


Depending on your financial situation, I would recommend having an immigration lawyer to at least review your final application package. 


Our platform also has some free resources that might help you with your entire Express Entry process.
