"Google Voice" app on Canadian Nexus 7?

I have a Google Voice account and phone number, and from my desktop I am able to send & receive SMS (google.com/voice) and even make outgoing calls (gmail.com). I just got a Nexus 7, and would like to find the 'Google Voice' app, but I'm not able to. What am I missing?

I lived in the US for the past couple of years, and while there got a Google Vocie phone number. I happily used the Google Voice app on an Android phone while I was in the US to manage voicemail and send/receive SMS. Now I'm back in Canada, and I'd like to use that same app (or an equivalent) on my newly-purchased Google Nexus 7. The app store seems to be denying the existence of such an app, which is crazy to me 'cause I know I've used it on another Android device.
What am I missing here? Is the app store discriminating against my tablet? The fact that I'm in Canada? Is this as easy as just getting an .apk from somewhere?
