I can also only speak about Ontario. Over here, results generally take somewhere between a week and two weeks.

The reason it takes variable amounts of time is because the samples are tested in batches. If you happen to get your sample in at the end of batch, you could get your results within a few days. If it happens to be the beginning of a batch, it may take a while.

Don't worry about the length of time it takes to get your test results back. The vast majority of the delay is due to the process that is implemented at the lab. Your results won't affect it.
