He was transferred to become Archbishop of Paris on 13 December 1920. He took part in the conclave of 1922 that electe Pope Pius XI. Dubois played a conciliatory role in relations with French authorities. He established an ordinariate (under Msgr. Chaptal, a descendant of the Napoleonic Interior Minister)to co-ordinate, thereby increasing French clerical control of the work of foreign language Catholic chaplaincies in Paris). He remained as Archbishop of Paris until his death in 1929. He is buried in Notre-Dame de Paris.
When the existence of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constantinople was under threat from the Turkish authorities, and the incumbent patriarch forced to leave the country, he led an unofficial mission on behalf of the French Government. The British reacted to this incident by sending a naval squadron, thus giving rise to the Perote saying (Pera was the diplomatic and cosmopolitan quarter of Constantinople) "les Anglais ont envoyé de l'acier et les Français Dubois".
