Default I-130 Processing Times?

My wife is a US citizen, and I am Canadian. We have been living in Canada since 1988. We've started the I-130 process to get a Green Card for me, so we can move close to her family in the US. I'm trying to get a handle on approximate time lines so we can plan a few things here in Canada.

We've submitted the I-130 and received an I797C, Notice of Action, with Priority Date in mid February 2017. Looking at the current Nebraska Service Center processing times, I see they are working on I-130s from August 9th. If that backlog holds constant (which is a big assumption, given the new government), my file should come up for review around October 2017. How long does the process typically take from that point forward?

Thanks,

Kevin

The overall processing time from submitting the I-130 to receiving the relevant visa is usually 8 to 10 months.

Not sure whether Canadian applications take less time? Maybe someone else can comment.
