How long can I expect to wait for approval or not of a Canadian transit visa?

I'm a Costa Rican citizen applying via Internet from Costa Rica.

It typically takes 13 days to process a visa application from Costa Rica, if the application is not missing anything. The Canadian government publishes such information on CIC but they don't list visitor and transit separately so I'm assuming in your case it might take less time than a regular visitor visa.
