The woods are lovely, dark and deep

In Ontario, can a person be buried in a natural way, so that the body returns to the earth?

My friend's husband is terminally ill; he will likely die at home this month.
He loves nature (specifically camping, hunting, and canoeing in the woods of Ontario).
He would like to be buried in a natural way that allows his body to return to the earth.
He lives in Toronto, but anywhere in/near Ontario would be fine.
What kinds of options are available?
What procedures should my friend put in motion now, and immediately after his death?
I can't believe this is happening; it's not fair.
