Does anyone know how I can determine which District, Division and Subdivision would cover the area of the CNE in the 1891 Toronto census ? I know the Division for 1901, but have read that the Wards changed in the 1890's. Any direction or clues greatly appreciated.

Toronto Public Library's Historicity http://historicity.tpl.toronto.on.ca/
has a fairly good map of the Toronto wards around that time.
Enter, and search for ward and map
In the search results, you want Maps, and it's 1. Plan of City of Toronto and Suburbs.

The map shows the numbered wards (red lines, red letters) and the old wards in coloured background. It looks like east of Dufferin south of King is St. George, north of King is St. Andrew, and west of Dufferin is St. Albans Ward, which may have been enumerated in 1891 as St. Marks' or Parkdale.
