I can't recall timings (didn't save the emails regarding the early application process), but I dealt with CFRC Toronto, and they've always been quite prompt and thorough. I wouldn't stress too much about the early process, it'll likely be multiple months or longer before you go from submitting an application to getting a Job Offer, if you're selected.
I'm only a new member here, but I applied to the Forces back in August-2016 and I'll be swearing in on March-2017, and from what I've read that's actually pretty quick.
(I browse this forum like crazy, and if you put in the research you probably wouldn't have even needed to ask)
But best of luck!
I'd say give it another week and then start asking again, someone might disagree, up to you at the end of the day, but I wouldn't say the "waiting game" is abnormal at all.
What trade will you applying for, might I ask?
