Located immediately west of Town of Caithness - Caledonia, the township is located within the boundaries of Caledonia Census Agglomeration. The township is part of the Alphabet Belt.
The town's area is 2132.5 squared km.
As part of the formerly Alphabet County, Dever - Dovercourt was the fourth parish created within the county. Created in 1727, Dever - Dovercourt was created 3 years after the creation of Caithness - Caledonia.
Dever - Dovercourt, however, lagged behind in terms of development when compared to Caithness - Caledonia. The parish originally had a stagnate population of around 29 (as recorded in the Book of History of the Alphabet County) for the 1800s and 1900s. In the mid 1900s, when the "émigré" movement occurred, when people moved out of the county to bigger counties such as what is now Gravenhurst Region, the parish was abandoned. It was not until after when Gravenhurst Region absorbed Alphabet County and started development in Caithness - Caledonia that lead to a restart of development in the parish. In 1976, after Alphabet County merged into Gravenhurst Region, Dever - Dovercourt was assigned as an "unorganized municipality". In 1983, Dever - Dovercourt was officially incorporated as a township. It maintained its status as a township until today.
Dever - Dovercourt is now commonly regarded as the suburb of the Town of Caithness - Caledonia.
With its name as Dever - Dovercourt, one would mistaken that the communities of Dever and Dovercourt must be located within the township. However, that is not the case. Dever is actually completely located within the boundaries of Caithness - Caledonia. There were debates made in the Archemedes Parliament that a re-alignment of the boundary should be made, making Dever part of the Dever - Dovercourt.
Within the boundaries of the Township of Dever - Dovercourt are the two communities: Dovercourt and Demeter.
Dever - Dovercourt's Town Hall is actually the ancient ruin of the parish church built in 1733, located near the centre of the community of Dovercourt. There is also a GO Transit train station named Dovercourt, part of the Golden Corridor Line.
There are no GRT routes serving the township.
The township is 28th biggest in terms of population out of all 37 municipalities in the region.
