The question is legit, but yeah, it takes a while.
The reason behind is simple: Verifier has to submit the data. Once done, an admin has to look at it, change the profile to be able to look at the classified section, one by one. It also has to add that little logo that shows the community that you are verified.
This takes times, is tedious and boring, and you are far from alone in Canada. Poor admin has a life, so he does them by batch while trying to not pass out from too much alcool while overcoming the sadness of this slave task.
