Your module should never need to know about specific roles (there might not be any for all you know). What you do is that you create and enforce permissions, suggest stereotype associations for them, and otherwise let the site admin decide what roles should have what permissions. Look-up any module that adds permissions (that's any built-in module, pretty much) and do the same thing they do.
