On 30 April 1997, Pope John Paul II appointed him Auxiliary Bishop of Toronto, and then almost five years later, on 27 April 2002, named him Archbishop of Kingston. He was Archbishop of Kingston until his death.
Archbishop Meagher also served as President of the corporation responsible for planning World Youth Day 2002, which was held in Toronto in July 2002 following diocesan celebrations across Canada.
