SMA envisions Saskatchewan as a global mining leader and aims to foster a safe, sustainable, and competitive mining industry that benefits all residents. Its foundational values include a focus on safety, collaboration, being well-informed, and promoting environmental, social, and economic sustainability.

The association engages with government agencies and the public to promote the responsible development of mineral resources. It aims to enhance the global competitiveness of the mining sector in Saskatchewan, work towards a legislative and regulatory environment that provides certainty, be recognized as a sustainable and essential sector, and strengthen diversity and inclusion. SMA also emphasizes organizational effectiveness.

Operating across various Treaty Territories and the Homeland of the Métis, SMA commits to respectful dialogue and relationships. It collaborates with provincial and national mining associations, educational institutions, and research organizations to underscore the critical role of mining in both Saskatchewan and Canada.
