So based on the Sûreté's insignia?

BTW do you know why the Sûreté uses so many stripes?

Many (though not all) of the police services in quebec that are under First nations authority use SQ type insignias. More then likely, this is to help illustrate that their status is more then a mere municipal one. In addition to the Eeyou-Eenou police, this also include among others the police service of Mashteuiatsh (see director below):

As to why the Director in this sort of system has so many stripes, it is a legacy part of the design. Orginialy, the ranks went constable (no stripes), corporal (1 stripe) sergeant (2 stripes separated by a "void" the size of 1 stripe) and above that, ranks used either groups of 3 stripes bunched close by with a void similar to the sergeant. Because of this, you ended up with the Director having an insignia that contained a stripe in every possible positions even though you don't have corporal in most police forces anymore and the sergeant and lieutenant have different insignias.
