Default IELTS General or IELTS Academic

There are two options given while registering for IELTS test , namely IELTS General and IELTS academics. Which one would be applicable with respect to applying for PR? Or is there no impact and we could go ahead and take up any of these.
Kindly suggest.

My husband took the General one. We are provincial nominees. I think it does matter and it does explain on the website which one you need. It will depend on your application

It depends on the requirement by the Assessing authority, e.g. if you getting yourself assessed by ICAA then they have requirement of Band 7 (IELTS - ACADEMIC) in each module for PR visa.

Canadian immigration and Australian immigration are two completely different things and what happens in one process does not happen in the other. ICAA has no bearing as to whether one gets PR in Canada or not... the Government of Canada has sole authority in this regard, not some program used for migration to Australia that has no equivalent in Canada.

The Government of Canada website clearly states that for the Express Entry program, they require a Canadian Language Benchmark score of 7 in each category and that the only non-Canadian english exam that they accept is the IELTS General Training... the IELTS equivalent of CLB 7 is IELTS 6
