The specific documents required may vary depending on your individual circumstances, but generally, you will need a valid passport, proof of sufficient funds to cover your expenses in Canada, a letter of invitation (if applicable), a cover letter expressing your intention to visit Canada (this is a very crucial letter), and any other documents requested by IRCC.
