In 1935 Ross was appointed to the Department of National Revenue in Ottawa.

He donated the royalties to the Crown as a contribution to the war effort. In 1941 Ross was appointed Solicitor to the Treasury, where he was engaged in large measure in the drafting of war-time financial legislation. He was called to the Ontario bar in 1945 and began private practice with the founding of Herridge, Tolmie, Gray, Coyne and Blair, an Ottawa-based law firm which specialized in cross-Canada corporate law. Between 1949 and 1958 Ross was instrumental in the incorportation and organization of the TransCanada PipeLine Company. He was privileged to serve as counsel to many Canadian corporations. In 1954 he was appointed Queen's Counsel. Ross was appointed Chair of the Canada-United States Committee of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in 1958-59. He was invited to become a consultant and advisor to the annual Seminars on Canadian-American Relations held at Assumption University in Windsor, Ontario.

During these years in Ottawa he was a founding member of the Five Lakes Fishing Club, of the Cercle Universitaire, and of the Ottawa Round Table. He was instrumental in the founding of the C.D. Howe Institute and was a life-long member of the Rideau Club. Ross served as President of numerous organizations, including the Ottawa chapter of the Canadian Club and the Rockcliffe Park Conservation Association. Ross also served on the Board of Directors of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and aided in the financial re-structuring of its journal.
