    Yes that is normal. You have to jump through a number of hoops to rank locally. Be warned that doing so usually means you lose or diminish your global listing.

    Add your Geo Tags:
    http://www.geo-tag.de/generator/en.html

    Use language and region notation in hreflang:
    https://moz.com/learn/seo/hreflang-tag
    <link rel="alternate" href="http://example.com" hreflang="en-ca" />

    Have local citations:

    Display the regional address and phone number on the page.

    Set your geo-targeting in Google Search Console.
