Insulation older house

Our home was built in the early 60's with 2 x 4 and stucco. When the outside drops below minus 20 C the walls in the closets, kitchen cupboards and electrical plugs freeze up. I want to remove the stucco, then add Thermax CI external insulation and finish it of with NEXSTONE panels. Will I need to ad a vapour barrier between the wood and the "thermax" and will that give us enough insulation?
