We are grateful you are here

Need some advice, I’m worried i made a winter error with my hives

I live eastern Canada for starters.
So I got 2 hives this spring and I think I got given the wrong advice. I was told to add a second brood box for the hive to be able to be strong enough to get through the winter.
I currently have 2 brood boxes almost full.

Was I supposed to be adding supers with Queen excluder and leave them for the winter so they have honey or is a double brood good enough for the colony to survive?

If it’s not. What are my options? Add a super now? Feed them throughout the winter?
