You could measure it in a knitting needle gauge or I found this if you don't have one. It's impossible to tell by looking at your photo what size it is.

I would say that needles looks too thick to be a US size 4 (3.5mm). It looks closer in size to the old British/Imperial size 4 (6mm). I think they used the Imperial sizes in Canada, before they switched to the metric sizes. So if those needles are Canadian and you were told they are size 4, that information could be right (just not right for your needs).

You have 64sts now on the needles so you want an increase every 8sts. That'll give you 8 additional sts for the total of 72sts. You can either knit 8sts and do an increase between sts (like a M1L or M1front) or you can knit 7sts and then do a kfb in the 8th stitch.
Once you have the increase you can slip the stitches purlwise to redistribute them so that you have 24sts on each of the 3 needles.
