Winnipeg Blue Bombers
On May 1, 2014, Maher signed a contract with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League (CFL). He played in two pre-season games for the Bombers before being released by the team due to the restrictions on the number of national and international players on the team's roster.
A few weeks after being released by Winnipeg he signed with the Ottawa Redblacks. In week four of the season, Maher was named the CFL's Special Teams Player of the Week after going 6-for-6 on field goals, scoring all the Redblacks' points in an 18-17 decision over the Toronto Argonauts. The win marked the expansion club's first-ever win. Maher was released by the Redblacks on May 13, 2015. This followed an injury suffered in the prior month, before the start of training camp.
