Activation of a prepaid account should be almost instant; more like 7 minutes in most cases. Activation of post paid should occur similarly, though it can take some time for some credits to be applied by Telus, or some may only be applied AFTER you have been a customer for some time.
Are the credits you refer to ones you want to apply to your account?
A bit more detail would help us provide a better answer.
